    AL - Man raped, videotaped son with other man in interstate child porn ring

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crim...icle-1.1549914

    Carl Philip Herold subjected his 9-year-old son to the abuse while Charles Dunnavant participated, cops say. The disturbing allegations could be part of a larger, interstate child porn ring, prosecutors fear.

    Two Alabama men kept a 9-year-old boy captive for months as they sexually tortured him and filmed it as part of a larger child porn ring, prosecutors in Huntsville say in a disturbing case.

    So disturbing were the more than 100 photographs police found that officers could not even positively identify the boy because they could not bear to look, cops said in court on Monday, AL.com reports.

    Charles Dunnavant is charged with sexual torture, sodomy, aggravated child abuse and exposing a person to an STD.

    Carl Philip Herold, the boy’s father, is charged with sodomy, sexual abuse, aggravated child abuse, child pornography production, distributing child pornography and with allowing his child to be depicted in pornography.


    Bless this little boy. I'm so glad he is now away from this despicable man, not a father, and will not be tortured again. May he receive all the love and care he needs to survive what no child should ever even know about.

    More from the OP:

    "He has the means of travel, family out of state and some of the allegations are there was much travel in the lives of Dunnavant and Herold," Madison County Assistant District Attorney Gabrielle Helix said at a bond hearing Monday. "They held the child captive for eight months and there are no standards, taboos or lines this defendant and his co-defendant hesitated to cross."
    Herold has a computer programming background and runs a popular YouTube channel where he livestreams programming lessons. Prosecutors say his son was not enrolled in school in Huntsville and that they think he was kept in the home without interaction with the outside world.
    Prosecutors asking $1 million bond for both.

    AL.com has some additional info:

    Dunnavant was arrested at a family home in Lincoln County, Tenn., Friday investigators said. During a hearing this afternoon seeking to raise Dunnavant's bond from $276,000 cash-only to $1 million cash-only, Huntsville Police Department investigator Chad Smith testified he was contacted by the FBI in early November about the possibility of a child sex victim in Huntsville.

    Smith said investigators came across numerous photos depicting sexual torture involving a child. Smith said investigators had an interview with the child, now 9, and he led investigators to his father. Herold spoke to investigators for several hours, Smith said, and implicated Dunnavant.

    Smith also testified the child did not attend school in Huntsville and investigators could find no medical records for the child. ......

    The cases are expected to be consolidated for prosecution in Madison County.

    "There are other potential jurisdictions with defendants, not anywhere near Alabama," Helix said.

    HUNTSVILLE, Alabama - State prosecutors say they are "confident and satisfied" that Carl Philip Herold, accused of holding a child captive, sexually torturing him and producing child pornography of the torture, will show up for trial after a judge here raised Herold's bond to $1 million cash today.

    Herold spoke to reporters outside the district courtroom saying, "I love and miss my son very much" and disputing a police investigator's testimony describing a trip Herold took to Disney World with the boy as at least in part about sex. Herold said the boy stayed with his grandmother during the trip and "turned 9 on Space Mountain.".......

    Smith gave no graphic details from the stand but concentrated on evidence that Herold has lived in Huntsville less than nine months, has no ties to the community and has a history of moving around the country. The ability to flee and the possibility of flight are one part of the two-part legal test for higher bond. The other part is whether the defendant is a threat to the community, and Scully-Clemmons said Herold "is a special kind of threat."......

    Smith testified that the boy's mother lives in Wyoming. She is separated, at least physically, from Herold, Smith said. Other sources said she "is not in the picture" as far as parenting.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.
