Augusta father, 44, faces child exploitation charges

A 44-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after he took naked photos of his child, police said.

According to an incident report, police were notified after the 8-year-old girl told her mother that her father, who has custody of her and her brother, had done “bad things to her” and made her take her clothes off so he could take photos.

The girl’s 11-year-old brother also told his mother that he had seen several photos of children who were naked or in their underwear on his father’s computer, according to authorities.

The man was booked into the Richmond County jail on charges of sexual exploitation of children. The Augusta Chronicle is not publishing his name to avoid identifying the victims.

Investigators said the investigation continues. The Department of Family and Child Services has also been informed of the incident.
