Raleigh man arrested on sexual exploitation charges

From staff reportsJuly 7, 2014 

— Police have charged a Raleigh man with 12 counts of sexual exploitation for having what they said were still pictures and videos of boys, some apparently 1 to 2 years old.

Arrest warrants said Blaine Robert Dorsey III, 31, of 9940 Pineville Road in Brier Creek had six still images and six videos.

Officers estimated that the ages of the children shown in sexual situations ranged from 1- to 2-year-old toddlers to boys 9 or 10 years old.

Police charged Dorsey with second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor after questioning at Raleigh detective headquarters Thursday evening, reports said.

The second-degree is filed when police believe a person has either made or duplicated material showing children in sexual activity or has solicited or distributed it.

Dorsey was being held Monday in lieu of $600,000 bail and was scheduled for a first appearance in court.
