Police say that a couple has been charged with making child po-nography with their two adopted children.
On July 27, the Sheriff’s Office went to a man’s home after learning that he was downloading child po-n.
After talking to the suspect, who was not named, police said they found out that there was another suspect in the county who was “making homemade child se-ual abuse material with at least one child who lived in the home,” the sheriff’s office said.
At 11:30 p.m. that same night, police went to the home of William, 32, and Zachary, 35, to search it.
Family and Child Services came to the house with deputies to help protect the two brothers who lived there.
During their search, deputies found evidence that the two men, who were the adopted fathers of the children, “were engaging in se-ually abusive acts,” the sheriff’s office said. They also found a video that showed the abuse.
The couple was booked into jail early the next morning.
Both men were charged with aggravated child molestation, se-ual exploitation of a child, and enticing a child for indecent purposes. William was also charged with molestation of a child.
