ATLANTA — A Cobb County man has been indicted for using social media to lure and then force teenagers into sending him nude pictures, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Tremain Hutchinson, 27, of Mableton was arraigned in federal court Wednesday before United States Magistrate Judge E. Clayton Scofield III and was detained without bond.

Hutchinson was indicted by a federal grand jury on Dec. 18 on charges that he induced and coerced minors into producing child pornography, enticed and coerced minors into engaging in sexual activity, received and possessed child pornography, and transferred obscene material to minors.

“Hutchinson is charged with exploiting social media to victimize children,” said United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates.

“His conduct is particularly disturbing because he threatened and coerced these terrified children into engaging in sexual acts.”

Prosecutors say Hutchinson had enticed and threatened numerous teenage girls to send nude photographs of themselves to him, whereupon he would threaten to post the photographs on Facebook and other social media sites, including their school websites, if the girls did not continue to send sexually graphic photographs and video recordings to him.

I do not think you should slay someones name through the media like this and they are not even found guilty. I actually researched this topich and you say children like they are 9 and 10 but these young ladies are actually teenagers I am a mother of 3 children and i like facts that are totally true and not altered to sound better.

As a mother, I found it hard to believe that it would make a difference to you whether they were children at the age of "9 and 10" or teenagers. If it were one of your daughters that were exploited, I doubt you would care if she were 3 or 33.

I agree. This country is "Innocent until PROVEN guilty". Advertising this before the trial is just plain wrong and goes against EVERYTHING this country says it stands for. I'm sorry, it's the sad truth of the matter. I'm a father of 4 young, beautiful, bright, and AMAZING children. But I feel VERY strongly that trial by media is NOT the answer!! Putting this guys name and face out to the world and in his LOCAL papers pre-prejudices any potential Jury Panel. People automatically assume guilt off of raw accusation and it completely ruines the person's life. Court findings of guilty OR not-guilty dont matter. Doesn't matter if he did it or not. Is guilty or not. In society's eye, he is and forever will be a child molesting maggot! This is just not right! Advertise AFTER trials and convictions NOT before!!!!!! AND NOT DURING!!!!! THE PEOPLE DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW UNTIL AFTER THE FACT!!!!
