An accused child molester in Georgia also had sex with a dog, police say.
Brandon Fanning, 19, of Guyton, Ga., was booked into the Effingham County jail on Thursday on child molestation charges, The Savannah Morning News reports. He is accused of aggravated child molestation, child molestation and sexual exploitation of a child.
The allegations were made after an investigation by the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office’s Internet Crimes against Children task force and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
“The investigation revealed that Fanning had been molesting an underage boy and possessed videos of the sexual acts between he and the victim which he was sharing,” sheriff’s spokesman David Ehsanipoor told SavannahNow.com.
He added that suspect also engaged in sexual acts with a dog.
Fanning reportedly shared the videos with his victim, an underage male, and also others out of state, which is how the Homeland Security Dept. got involved.
Ehsanipoor said the videos allegedly made by Fanning were very graphic and very disturbing. "Some of the details we have seen on these videos we couldn't even try to explain on television," he told WTOC-TV. "It's one of those disgusting situations and we wouldn't be able to believe anyone would try to do something like that."
Ehsanipoor did not reveal how Fanning and the boy knew each other, but it could be the tip of the iceberg.
“It resulted in this arrest and possibly more down the road,” Ehsanipoor told the Effingham Herald.
