DECATUR, Ga. — Authorities say a veteran sheriff’s captain is accused of using a computer to have an inappropriate relationship a 14-year-old boy.

Henry County sheriff’s Capt. David McCart was apprehended Tuesday by DeKalb County police after a two-month investigation.

DeKalb County police Sgt. Torrey Kennedy tells WSB-TV that his agency was conducting a cross-country investigation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and came into contact with a suspect later identified as McCart.

CBS 46 reports that McCart is being held on charges of computer pornography and child exploitation and faces a court hearing at 8:30 a.m. Thursday. It wasn’t known whether he has a lawyer.

Henry County sheriff’s officials say they’re assisting DeKalb County authorities with the investigation. They say McCart was terminated when Henry County Sheriff Keith McBrayer learned of the investigation.

It is my belief that LEO's should conduct themselves just a little bit higher and cleaner than the average guy. I also believe that they should set an example for the general public. But that's just me.

I don't think the police even conduct any pre employment screening.
