      SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) - A Naval officer from Summerville was arrested Wednesday on child pornography charges.

      According to a release from the Attorney General's office, 36-year-old Justin Eugene Berry was charged with five counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of minors.

      Berry is a Chief Petty Officer with the Navy. Officials reportedly notified NCIS of the arrest.

      If Berry is convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison on each count.
