A Walker County man has been arrested for Sexual Exploitation of a Child.

On Tuesday, May 12, 2020, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit (CEACC), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and the Walker County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at the residence of Damon Scarlett, 30, in LaFayette, Walker County, GA. The search warrant was related to an investigation pertaining to the online sexual exploitation of children.

As a result of the investigation, Scarlett was arrested and charged with Possession of Child Pornography, Creation/Distribution of Child Pornography, and Child Molestation. Scarlett is currently being held at the Walker County Jail, according to the state agency.

This investigation is part of the ongoing effort by the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, housed within the GBI’s Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit, to identify those involved in the child pornography trade and the online sexual exploitation of children. The ICAC Program, created by the U. S. Department of Justice, was developed in response to the increasing number of children and teenagers using the Internet, the proliferation of child pornography, and the heightened online activity by predators searching for unsupervised contact with underage victims.

Anyone with information about this case or any other cases of child exploitation is asked to contact the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Computer Crimes and Child Exploitation Unit at 404-270-8870.

    THE ONLY CURE FOR THESE PSYCHOPATH PERVS IS EXECUTION. STOP GIVING THEM A FEW YEARS IN PRISON AND LETTING THEM OUT TO ABUSE AND DESTROY CHILDREN AGAIN !
