NC father, son face sexual exploitation charges

WINTERVILLE, N.C. (AP) – Pitt County authorities say a father
and son are free on bond after being charged with sexual
exploitation of minors because of images of children found on their
computers.

Authorities say 64-year-old Melvin David Wetzel of Winterville
and his teenage son are no longer being held at the Pitt County
jail.
The Daily Reflector of Greenville reported that Melvin Wetzel is charged with 10 counts
of sexual exploitation of a minor and his son is charged with seven
counts.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Christy Wallace says authorities
have investigated the two since October.

It wasn’t immediately clear if they have attorneys. The
Associated Press left a message at a phone number listed in Melvin
Wetzel’s name.
