More charges filed against Davie man

Child pornography charges keep piling up against a former daycare worker at a Davie church.

Christian Blue Reavis, 21, of Liberty Church Road, Mocksville, was arrested most recently on May 7, charged with statutory sexual offense with a child, first-degree exploitation of a minor and third degree exploitation of a minor.

Reavis worked at Blaise Baptist Church as a daycare worker prior to his first arrest in March. The church and its staff are cooperating with investigators, said Davie Sheriff J.D. Hartman.

The investigation  began on March 13 when detectives with the N.C. Internet Crimes against Children Taskforce and the Davie County Sheriff’s Office received information that child exploitation material was transmitted over the internet. Reavis was identified as the suspect.

On March 18. investigators executed a search warrant at the address on Liberty Church Road. Reavis was arrested for one count of first degree exploitation of a minor, two counts of third degree exploitation of minor and two counts of misdemeanor child abuse. He was taken into custody in lieu of  a $75,000 bond.

On March 19, he was released from custody after posting the $75,000 bond.

Interviews were conducted with known potential victims at the Dragonfly House Child Advocacy Center in Mocksville. Upon review of victim statements and forensic examinations of cell phones and computers, Reavis was charged with 10 counts of second degree exploitation of a minor. He was arrested without incident at his residence on April 1, and  received a $200,000 secured bond during his bond hearing.

During further investigation, a video file was located that depicted the suspect performing a sexual act on a minor in 2018. Location data and visual identifiers were attached to the video. The information was provided to the parent/guardian of the minor who was able to confirm the location as their residence.

Additional warrants were secured, and an additional $250,000 secured bond was issued.

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be possible, Hartman said.
