Suspect arrested, victim safe in widely shared child porn video

MILLBROOK, Ala. — Authorities in Alabama say a man wanted for a child porn video being shared around the world has been arrested.

WSFA-TV reports that 44-year-old Germaine Moore turned himself into the Millbrook Police Department around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

He is charged with four counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, two counts of child sexually abusive activity, one count of computers — using to commit a crime and one count of children — distributing sexually explicit, visual or verbal matter.

News outlets report the victim has been located and is safe.

Moore also has been charged in Detroit in the sexual assault of three young female relatives.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Tuesday that he is expected to be extradited to Michigan on criminal sexual conduct and other charges.

The assaults are alleged to have occurred in Detroit between 2011 and 2017.

State Bureau of Investigation Lt. Brooke Walker says Moore’s fiancee was arrested Monday night and is not cooperating.

Moore also is wanted in Detroit, where prosecutors allege that he sexually assaulted three girls.

The video circulating on Facebook and other social media as far as Colorado and France shows a young girl performing oral sex on an adult.

The Montgomery Police Department charged 42-year-old Jerrell Washington with distributing it, and warn that anyone who shares the video, even in outrage, can be charged as well.

Note: The distribution of the video on Facebook prompted FOX31, Channel 2, and several other media outlets to turn off Facebook messaging to prevent employees from seeing the video. Facebook messages will be turned on again in the future. In the meantime, you can contact us here.
