Investigators say Craig allegedly sexually abused a 9-year-old girl over a two-year period. The girl saw a presentation at school about what to do if you were being physically or sexually abused, and came forward to tell her teacher this type of thing was happening to her. The teacher notified the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office and Etowah County DHR.
Investigators say Craig gave consent for them to search his cell phone, and they found more than 35 pornographic photos. Craig is being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on $150,000 bond.
The Etowah County Sheriff’s Office thanks the James M. Barrie Center for helping in the investigation.
