LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A man charged in Pulaski County for allegedly taking pictures of a minor is now facing similar charges in Saline County.
Authorities arrested Gideon Gulledge, 22, for manufacturing and possessing sexually explicit conduct involving a child. Lt. Carl Minden with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office says Gulledge admitted to taking the photos of a teen he knew through his church in Saline County.
Because of the tie to their county, Saline County authorities conducted several interviews and determined that Gulledge allegedly committed more crimes in their county.
Gulledge is now facing additional charges of:
- Two counts of engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in visual or print medium
- Two counts of pandering or possessing visual or print medium depicting sexually explicit conduct involving an child
- Sexual indecency with a child
Lt. Scottie Courtney with the Saline County Sheriff's Office says he didn't know if these charges are connected with the same victim involved in the Pulaski County case or additional victims, but he says the do have reason to believe these crimes happened in their jurisdiction.
A Saline County judge has ordered Gulledge be held on $10,000 bond with his next court date being March 19.
