Former youth intern faces new porn charges

Posted:

DAWSON COUNTY, Ga. — There are at least three dozen new child pornography charges for a former church intern first charged in March with child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes.

Sean E. Paul, 28, of Dawsonville, was first charged in March after investigators found that the youth minister intern at First Christian Church on Sawnee Drive in Cumming had been sexting with a minor.

Dawson County Sheriff’s Capt. Tony Wooten told news stations that the new charges are from child pornography that was allegedly discovered on computers and other electronic equipment following his March arrest.

It was a “significant” amount of child pornography, according to Wooten.

The equipment was searched in Paul’s Dawsonville home. He now faces 32 felony counts of sexual exploitation of children. The warrants were issued June 20 by the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office.

In Forsyth County, Paul is charged with child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and electronically furnishing obscene material to a minor.
