A Western Harnett High School student turned himself in at the Harnett County Jail Tuesday on charges he sexually exploited a minor child. Daeron Torres, 18, of Cameron faces two charges of sexual exploitation of a minor. He remains held in the Harnett County Jail with bond set at $10,000. According to Harnett County Sheriff’s Lt. Greg Taylor, Mr. Torres videotaped a “lewd act” on a Harnett County School bus and then disseminated the video.
Lt. Taylor did not describe the act or how the material was disseminated.
Harnett County Schools Public Relations Director Patricia Harmon- Lewis confirmed Mr. Torres was a senior student at Western Harnett High School. She said she was not aware of any disciplinary action being taken by the school system.
“Because it is a felony, the school will be notified, but that is all the information we can release at this time,” Mrs. Harmon-Lewis said.
