OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) - 34- year-old Bradford Lee Davis of Opelika has been charged with 30 counts of possession with the intent of distributing obscene matter containing visuals of minors.

Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones, Auburn Police Chief Paul Register and Lee County District Attorney Robbie Treese, held a press conference Wednesday announcing Davis' charges.

" A joint investigation revealed evidence that Davis was in the possession and possible distribution of images depicting young children engaging in sexually explicit activities," says Jones.

This is not the first time Davis has been in trouble with the law involving minors. He was on probation from a ten year prison term in Georgia for aggravated child molestation.

In June, Davis violated his probation by visiting a location where children were present in Lee County and was arrested by the Auburn Police Division.

His arrest stemmed an investigation during the period Davis was inmate in Georgia and since he has been living in Lee County.

"Our particular arrests concern issues in Lee County. He is facing additional charges in the state of Georgia that would involve victims in regard to their situation," explains Jones.

Davis has been behind bars at the Lee County Detention Facility since his arrest in June.

His bond is currently set at $150,000.

Authorities would not comment on what evidence was found, but did say it was "very disturbing" and there are multiple victims of this crime.
