Virginia State Police placed one of its troopers under arrest for charges related to sexual misconduct with a juvenile and pornography distribution.
Christopher A. Carson, a Bealeton resident assigned to patrol in Fauquier County, was arrested and charged on Monday.
State Police said the sexual misconduct with a juvenile took place ten years ago, before Carson became a Trooper in July of 2005.
He's charged with four counts: one count of aggravated sexual battery, one count of indecent liberties with a child, and two counts of distributing pornography to a juvenile.
Carson has been on administrative leave since December 27. He's currently held without bond in Fauquier County Jail.
