— A Wilson man has been charged after police say he was trafficking in online child pornography.

Frederick Mason, 42, of Trinity Drive, was charged last Wednesday with 10 count of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. He remained in the Wilson County Jail Tuesday under a $200,000 bond.

A law enforcement task force that tracks online crimes against children alerted Wilson police that they believed Mason was involved with child pornography over the Internet, police said.
