The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a 25-year-old Dawsonville man for allegedly possessing multiple images and videos of child pornography. 

According to Dawson County Sheriff Jeff Johnson, Dennis Laron Brown was arrested on Thursday, Jan. 14, 2021, following an investigation by the sheriff’s office and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. 

Warrants allege that between August and November 2020, Brown knowingly took possession of 13 image and video files depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. According to warrants, the images were allegedly taken from the social media platform Twitter. 

“At this point, we do not believe that the subjects in these specific images were personally known to Brown; however the investigation continues and additional charges may be likely,” Johnson said in an email to the Dawson County News.  

Brown has been charged with 13 counts of sexual exploitation of children and is being held in the Dawson County Detention Center with a bond of $70,200.
