Bridgeport man held on child pornography charges
Mono County Sheriff's deputies and U.S. Postal Inspectors this past week arrested a Bridgeport man on child pornography charges.
David Charles Corkett, 52, was not exactly a stranger to Mono County deputies.
Wanted in Clatsop County, Oregon but now living in Bridgeport, Corkett survived a gunshot-related suicide attempt last New Year's Eve at the Mono Basin Visitors Center in Lee Vining, and relocated back to the Bridgeport area after receiving treatment at Renown Hospital in Reno, a sheriff's department spokesperson said in a news release.
On Tuesday, April 22, at approximately 3:30 p.m., several U.S. Postal Inspectors met with Mono County Sheriff’s Deputies at the Administrative Offices in Bridgeport for assistance with the felony arrest warrant on the child pornbography charges.
Deputies located Corkett, arrested him without incident, and transported him to the Mono County Jail, where he remained in custody as of Friday, April 25.
