Maryville man charged with aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor

Blount County Sheriff James Lee Berrong announced a 21-year-old Maryville man is charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor following his arrest Wednesday night.

Adam William McGilvray, 21, of Hutton Ridge Road, Maryville, is being held in the Blount County Detention Facility on bonds totaling $75,000 pending a hearing in Blount County General Sessions Court at 9 a.m. November 1st. McGilvray is charged with one count of sexual exploitation of a minor for possession of child pornography, and one count of aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor for distribution of child pornography.

McGilvray's arrest is the result of a three week long on-line investigation by the Sheriff's Office HEAT (Hi-Tech Evidence and Technology) Unit, as part of ICAC -TN (Internet Crimes Against Children, Tennessee). Wednesday, HEAT Unit investigators executed a search warrant at McGilvray's residence and seized his computer. A forensic exam of the hard drive revealed images and videos of child sexual abuse victims that McGilvray downloaded from the Internet. The investigation is ongoing.
