Hartford Child Porn Bust

Authorities said they've broken-up a child pornography ring in one Wiregrass town. The reported victim is a 14-year-old girl.

Hartford Police Chief Greg Adams said his newly placed resource officer at Geneva County High School played a key role in the investigation.

Authorities have arrested three suspects from the Hartford area.

Twenty-two-year-old Harry Darden, Jr., Kenneth Lawson, Jr. and 18-year-old Johnny Ward, Jr. face felony charges of enticing a child for immoral purposes and the manufacture and distribution of obscene material.

They allegedly brought the victim to an isolated area and videotaped her in the nude.

Adams said the tape was circulated around school.

Authorities believe there's at least one other instance where the men videotaped a young girl naked.

All three suspects have been released from jail on $20,000 bond each.
