— Nathan Donald Whittle, 37, of Raleigh faces 12 counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor in connection with what police at N.C. State University said in arrest warrants were videos of girls between an estimated 3 and 11 years old in sexual situations.

All 12 counts accuse Whittle, who lives at 4510 Mimosa Tree Lane, of receiving videos on three days last spring.

Whittle was arrested Thursday evening, according to reports.

It was unclear Friday why university police were the ones to bring the charges.

Whittle was being held in lieu of $500,000 bail and was scheduled to appear in court Friday.
