Detectives Charge Palm Coast Man with Possessing Child Pornographic Material

A Palm Coast man has been arrested and charged with 10 counts of possessing child pornography after the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) was alerted via a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

James McGill, 33, was arrested on Thursday, May 30 after an investigation conducted by the FCSO Cyber Crimes/Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit.
On January 11, 2024, detectives served a search warrant at McGill’s home where he was interviewed and multiple electronics were seized from the residence. During the investigation, 10 electronic files of videos and photos were located that portrayed children in sexually exploitative situations. The victims were estimated to range from as young as five years of age to 11 years old.
McGill was taken into custody without incident by the FCSO Problem Area Crime Enforcement (PACE) Unit and transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. He is currently being held on $150,000 bail.

“I want to commend Detective Held, our lead investigator in our Cyber Crimes/ICAC Unit, in building a case to put this pervert behind bars at the Green Roof Inn,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Thanks to the tip from NCMEC, we were able to apprehend him before he could become a more serious child predator. This type of perverted behavior will not be allowed in Flagler County, and we will come after you.”
