CEO arrested on child porn charge after hidden camera found in company bathroom

23-year-old CEO facing child porn charge

HERNANDO, MS (WMC) - The president and CEO of a DeSoto County staffing company is facing new charges after being accused of hiding a camera in the women’s bathroom of his business.

David Hunter Moore, 23, was arrested a second time Thursday for producing child pornography. He was jailed on $200,000 bond.

Moore was first arrested a week earlier after a woman reported finding a camera in the bathroom at Moore Advanced in Hernando. According to police, the victim told investigators she spotted a USB adapter in an outlet in the women’s restroom. When she pulled the adapter from the wall she discovered a blinking light.

The victim took a photo of the adapter, researched it online and discovered it contained a hidden camera. Police later found two additional recording devices and a body camera in Moore’s desk.

He was arrested for photographing and filming without permission and released from jail after posting $50,000 bond.8

Hernando Police Chief Scott Worsham said investigators discovered the images after looking through countless hours of evidence.

"The evidence that our detectives recovered depict pictures and videos of an underage child," said Worsham.

Based on evidence, Worsham said investigators believe Moore has been using hidden recording devices for at least a year.

So far they have identified more than 15 adult victims and 1 child under the age of 14.

An attorney for Moore released a statement Friday, saying his client has committed no crime but is instead “being persecuted by a disgruntled former employee" who is motivated by financial gain. Attorney Martin Zummach writes that Moore and his family look forward to his day in court.

An attorney for David Moore says allegations that his client hid cameras in the bathroom of his staffing company are brought by a disgruntled former employee.
