ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina school psychologist has been charged with sexually exploiting a minor.
The Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office says Chris Reid was charged Thursday with one count of the felony.
Sheriff’s officials say the 69-year-old was taken into custody after investigators seized electronic devices from his home while executing a search warrant.
Additional charges could come after the State Bureau of Investigation performs a forensic examination of the devices.
A Buncombe County Schools spokeswoman says Reid has been a psychologist with the system since 2017.
Officials say Reid has been suspended pending an internal investigation. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney who can comment for him.
