ATLANTA (AP) -- Federal authorities have arrested a north Georgia man accused of videotaping his sexual abuse of a 9-year-old girl over a four-year period and distributing photos and videos of the alleged incidents over the Internet.
James Bartholomew Huskey was arrested at his home in LaFayette on Monday and faces charges of manufacturing child pornography and uploading it to the Internet. Federal authorities began investigating the case in June 2006, and discovered images of a man sexually assaulting a young girl.
Prosecutors say the 38-year-old Huskey admitted abusing the girl and sending the images online. The victim was identified and confirmed the assaults and tapings.
Huskey's two children have been taken into protective custody by Georgia authorities.
