Grenada Man Arrested on Child Pornography Charge
A 43-year-old man from Grenada was arrested Wednesday after being charged with one count of child exploitation, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.
Jeramy Mooney was arrested at the Grenada County Sheriff’s Office following an investigation of suspicious online activity. He was booked into the Grenada County Jail awaiting his initial appearance.
If convicted, Mooney faces up to 40 years in prison and $500,000 in fines. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
This case was investigated by Jay Houston with the Mississippi Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force with assistance from the Grenada County Sheriff’s Office. It will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn
