Clarksville man facing child porn charges

Brewster Jr.

A Clarksville man was charged with having more than 500 images of child pornography.

According to Tennessee law, it is unlawful for any person to knowingly possess material that includes a minor engaged in sexual activity.

In December, an investigation began after authorities said a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children led them to Randy Joe Brewster Jr., 32, of Clarksville.

The tip indicated Brewster was the user of an email account that contained videos and other images of child porn.

There were 39 images initially discovered, according to the affidavit, which led to a much larger discovery in January.

On Jan. 12, investigators said in the affidavit, “…several devices were seized from Mr. Brewster’s residence in Montgomery County, Tennessee.”

The investigation revealed a total of 533 images or videos, the affidavit said.

Montgomery County sheriff’s deputies charged Brewster on Feb. 12.

Brewster was charged with five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor (more than 100), with the suspect allegedly having in his possession more than 100 images of child pornography per count, on devices he owned.

He was booked in at the Montgomery County Jail and received a $120,000 bond.
