A 19 -year-old already facing sex offense charges involving a minor now faces new counts, according to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.

Tyler Baird of Roanoke Rapids remains in custody following the charges filed today, Detective B.C. Griffin said.

The bond associated with the new counts — $750,000— raises his total bond to $1 million.

Griffin said this evening the new counts reflect alleged offenses committed against the same victim.

He said the victim’s parents reported the matter but declined to say how they found out.

A search warrant in the case is expected to be sealed upon its return to clerk’s office, Griffin said.

Baird, a former church youth intern, has an August 16 court date on the new counts, Sheriff Wes Tripp said in a statement.

Griffin said this evening there is no indication the charges involved the church or its members.

He said the charges reflect offenses allegedly committed in both the city limits of Roanoke Rapids as well the county.

Tripp said in the statement the new charges were lodged after further investigation by Griffin.

Griffin said investigation continues and there is possibility more counts could be filed.

 

The new counts filed against Baird are:

 

Six counts of crimes against nature

 

Four counts of disseminating obscene material to a minor. Griffin said the charges reflect poronographic photos and videos being sent. He declined to say who was in the materials.

 

Three counts of indecent liberties with a child.

 

Two counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a child. This charge, Griffin said, involves anything done to send out, manufacture, receive or solicit pornographic materials involving minors

 

Two counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a child. This charge reflects possessing pornapgraphic materials involving a minor

 

Two counts of disclosure of private images. This charge reflects photos and videos sent without permission of the person in the material.

 

Soliciting a minor by computer.

 

Felony secret peeping. This charge reflects hiding a recording device for sexual gratification in a private place and filming or photographing a person without their knowledge or permission

 

Possessing photographic images from peeping

 

Fornication and adultery, which reflect Baird was married at the time of the alleged offenses  

 

Griffin charged Baird Saturday with four counts of statutory rape of a child and six counts of statutory sexual offence with a child between the age of 13 and 14.
