Teen girl ar­rested for show­ing ju­ve­niles porn

The Covington News - - Local - AM­BER PITTMAN apittman@cov­news.com

A teenage girl who called deputies to re­port that she was a vic­tim of sex­ual bat­tery was ar­rested and charged with pro­vid­ing ju­ve­niles with pornog­ra­phy, as well as fil­ing a false po­lice re­port.

Keia Vantrece Amos, 17, was charged with ag­gra­vated child mo­lesta­tion, en­tic­ing a child for in­de­cent pur­poses and false re­port of a crime Satur­day. Deputies from the New­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice were called to her home by her. She re­port­edly told them some­one had touched her in­ap­pro­pri­ately.

While the in­ves­ti­ga­tion didn’t show that she was nec­es­sar­ily ly­ing about the touch­ing, it did show that the ac­cu­sa­tions came from a dif­fer­ent county and hap­pened sev­eral years be­fore.

It also re­vealed, ac­cord­ing to NCSO Lt. Ty­rone Oliver, that Amos had shown ju­ve­niles pornog­ra­phy on the home com­puter. While it does not say which child was shown the in­ap­pro­pri­ate ma­te­rial — or if all were — there are ju­ve­niles in the home aged 13, 8 and 6.

Amos was ar­rested and trans­ported to the New­ton County De­ten­tion Cen­ter. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion into her ac­cu­sa­tions of some­one abus­ing her pre­vi­ously are still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, ac­cord­ing to Oliver.
