Internet Crime Unit Nets Another Arrest
The Internet Crimes Against Children task force of the Cookeville Police Department continues to use undercover investigations to catch would-be sexual predators. Police says the latest case involves a Dickson County man who allegedly sent sexually explicit images over the Internet to a person he thought was a minor. 51-year-old Darren Thomas Maddy of White Bluff, Tennessee, was indicted on charges of electronic exploitation of a minor and solicitation of a minor. Police claim he solicited sexual contact from a law enforcement officer who was posing online as a minor. He'll be in court on the charges November 29th.
