MERCER COUNTY (WVVA) A man in Mercer County is arrested on Sunday on child porn charges.

Darryl Gibson, 19, was arrested at his home on Mapleview Road in Bluefield, WV for allegedly making a video of his fiancee's 16-year-old sister taking a shower. 

According to the criminal complaint, the 16-year old had stayed the night at her sister's home and decided to take a shower. Before she entered the bathroom, Gibson asked to use it first. After taking a shower, the 16-year-old noticed a cell phone propped up on the vanity pointing toward the shower. Once she examined the phone she found it had been recording. According to court documents, the video showed her nude while taking a shower. It also showed Gibson setting the phone down at the beginning of the video. 

The 16-year-old took the phone, left the bathroom and called her mother who then contacted the Mercer County Sheriff's Office.

Gibson is being held in Southern Regional Jail on $50,000 bond.
