Charles Edward Binger Jr Faces Child Porn Charges After Standoff

A Maryville man is facing child porn and drug related charges after a standoff with Blount County Deputies Monday.

Charles Edward Binger, Jr., 48, is in the Blount County Jail on charges of sexual exploitation of a minor, destruction of evidence, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

After a 45 minute standoff with police at his home on Argyle Way, sheriff's officials say four computers and several guns were confiscated along with marijuana seeds and drug paraphernalia.

A forensic exam of those computers show images of child porn.

That's a big concern for neighbors.

Neighbor Chris Kawa says, "That kind of stuff could be anybody of any type. Whether you're wearing a suit and tie or whether you look like you crawled out from under a rock. It's a scary situation but not all that surprising."

Binger is currently being held on $131,000 bond.

Sheriff's officials say more charges could be pending.

  1. I think his wife may be an elementary school teacher. If this is who I think it is, he had volunteered to teach an afterschool class at our school this past spring...........I'm not sure if they had the class or not.
