Poplarville Man Pleads Guilty to Child Exploitation

On Monday, Attorney General Jim Hood announced that 23 year-old Darryl Warner III, of Poplarville, pled guilty to one count of child exploitation.

Warner, originally from Picayune, appeared Monday before Pearl River County Circuit Court Judge Claiborne McDonald. Judge McDonald scheduled a sentencing hearing for Friday, August 11th, at 9:00 a.m. Warner faces up to 40 years behind bars.

Warner was arrested April 5, 2016, after being found in possession of child sexual abuse images of children under the age of eight. He was arrested by Investigator Wayne Lynch of the Attorney General’s Cyber Crime Unit/Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force with assistance from the Pearl River County Sheriff’s Office and the Picayune Police Department.

The case is being prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn of the Attorney General’s Cyber Crime Unit.
