FBI: North Carolina man faces 332 child sex-related charges

RAEFORD, N.C. — A North Carolina man faces more than 300 separate counts for sex-related crimes involving a juvenile.

The Hoke County sheriff said Sunday that Joshuah Taylor Bradshaw, 30, was apprehended by the FBI in Mississippi and returned to North Carolina.

The sheriff said detectives went to a Raeford home last month for a reported juvenile sexual assault. Arrest warrants were obtained, but Bradshaw left North Carolina.

The charges include:

  • Statutory sexual offense with a child by an adult - 12 counts
  • Taking indecent liberties with children - 12 counts
  • Crimes against nature - 12 counts
  • First-degree sexual exploitation of a minor - 12 counts
  • Second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor - 144 counts
  • Third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor - 144 counts

Bradshaw was extradited back to Raeford and received 332 charges. He was placed on a $20 million bond while awaiting a first court appearance on Monday.
