(Franklin, GA) — A local man was jailed by the Heard County authorities earlier this week following a child pornography investigation.

Michael Forrest Milam, age 31, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with Possession of Child Pornography (O.C.G.A. 16-12-100 – Sexual Exploitation of Children.)

According to a report by Heard County Sheriff’s Office investigator Sgt. Dan Boswell, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program (ICAC) alerted the Georgia Bureau of Investigation task force which led to the seizure of Milam’s computer and subsequent arrest.

Sgt. Boswell says Milam allegedly received and shared child pornography on the internet via the Dropbox App.

A guilty verdict on the felony count of Child Pornography is punishable by imprisonment for not less than five nor more than 20 years and by a fine of not more than $100,000.00.
