Duplin County man facing 42 more child porn charges

DUPLIN COUNTY, NC (WITN) - An Eastern Carolina man who was arrested last week on child porn charges is facing 42 additional charges.

Rolando Lopez-Juarez, who lives near Warsaw, was originally charged last Thursday with several child porn charges. Those were for one count of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor, one count of felony dissemination of obscenity, one count of second degree exploitation of a minor.

Duplin County deputies say after an additional investigation, they charged the 40-year-old man with fourteen counts of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor, fourteen counts of felony dissemination of obscenity, and fourteen counts of second degree exploitation of a minor.

Lopez-Juarez, who is also being held on a detainer by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, now has a $1,000,000 secured bond.

Deputies say they began their investigation two months ago.
