On Friday, Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Jeffrey Scott Brooks, 38, 1153 U.S. Highway 321, after he was indicted on 79 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

The indictment was handed down by the grand jury on Jan. 15. According to Kingsport Police Department Public Information Officer Tom Patton, the charges stemmed from a KPD investigation that was being conducted on May 10, 2012, while Brooks was a Kingsport resident.

“During the course of a separate investigation in which he was a party to, they (detectives) received information that he was in possession of child pornography,” Patton said.
