Dawsonville man booked for allegedly having child porn while on release from jail
Dennis Laron Brown

One man remains in custody after being arrested last week for allegedly committing sexual crimes while he was on conditional release for earlier charges. 

Dennis Laron Brown, 26, Dawsonville, was arrested by the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office on Feb. 16, 2022 and charged with four felony counts of sexual exploitation of children.

He was also charged with a failure to comply with pre-trial conditions in a 2021 case where he’s been charged with 13 counts of sexual exploitation of children. 

Four warrants allege that between 9:55 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Feb. 16, he contained photographic and video materials depicting minors in a sexually explicit manner in folders on his phone. 

The materials showed children ranging from two to 5-6 years old being sexually abused in various ways. 

Since Brown violated his release terms by having contact with alcohol and devices capable of accessing the internet, he was arrested with “no bond” listed next to his charges on DCSO’s weekly news release. 

A little over a year earlier, on Jan. 14, 2021, DCSO arrested Brown after an investigation by the sheriff’s office and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, according to a previous DCN article.

Warrants from that case allege that between August to November 2020, Brown had possession of image and video files depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Those warrants allege that the files were allegedly downloaded from Twitter. 

DCN will provide updates on Brown’s cases as more information becomes available.
