Former Knox County Criminal Court employee Joshua Ryan Fettig, 20, was arrested Wednesday on charges of sexual exploitation of a minor, Knoxnews reports. Investigators began looking at Fettig last December after receiving tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone had attempted to use their email account to send images of child pornography. Fettig worked as a night clerk in the judicial commissioner’s office at the time the probe was initiated. A forensic examination of “confiscated computers” revealed 356 images of child pornography, investigators said. Criminal Court Clerk Joy McCroskey fired Fettig after his work computer was seized in mid-January.
