A North Georgia man faces child sex crimes after officials found child pornography in his home sent from his teenage fiancée.
Shawn Ryan Budovic, 27, of Cartersville, remains in the Bartow County jail on a $5,000 bond, according to jail records. He faces a computer pornography and child exploitation charge.
Authorities searched Budovic’s McKaskey Creek Road home Tuesday and seized “homemade” child pornography taken by and sent from his 17-year-old fiancée Kayla White, GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said. The children in the photos were ages 3, 4 and 9.
White, who lives in Trenton, Michigan, was arrested and charged with first-degree child abuse.
