A retired man is in trouble with the law for allegedly possessing child pornography. David D. Tate was arrested after being indicted by a March Grand Jury in Rutherford County. In March, police executed a search warrant at Tate’s 1457 Rucker Lane home.
Police say that Tate, who goes by the nickname of Tater Tot, had been purchasing the child pornography from an unnamed source. He had over 100-images of child porn. As a result of the allegations, Tate was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor and aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.
Tate was booked into the local jail under a $50-thousand bond. At this point he has been unable to come up with the money to bond out of jail. He will appear in court on July 16.
