A resource officer at Summerville High School resigned Wednesday after authorities accused him of dealing in child pornography.
Patrolman 1st Class Carlisle Johnson Floyd, 40, had been arrested Tuesday on three felony counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. Each charge is punishable with between two and 10 years in prison.
A three-year employee of the Summerville Police Department, Floyd was free on $30,000 bail Wednesday when he resigned, town human resources manager Cynthia Brown said.
An arrest affidavit offered few details about the reported crimes that took place more than two weeks before the school year began. SLED spokesman Thom Berry said he had no information about whether the case involved the school. But district officials said that no evidence indicated such a link and that Floyd had an exemplary history at the high school he graduated from more two decades ago.
