An U.S. couple has been charged with using their two adopted children to record child po-nography, police said. Authorities raided the home after receiving reports that a man there was downloading child po-n.
After interviewing the suspect, who was not identified, police said they learned there was another suspect in the county who was “producing homemade child se-ual abuse material with at least one child who lived in the home,” the sheriff’s office said.
Around 11:30 p.m. that same night, executed a search warrant at the home of William, 32, and Zachary, 35. The county’s Division of Family and Child Services joined deputies in responding to the home to help protect the two brothers who lived there.
During their search, deputies found evidence the pair, who were the children’s adoptive fathers, “were engaging in se-ually abusive acts and video documenting this abuse,” the sheriff’s office said. Early the next morning, the gay couple were both booked at jail.
Both men were charged with aggravated child molestation, se-ual exploitation of a child and enticing a child for indecent purposes. William was additionally charged with child molestation.
