Flowery Branch man faces 26 counts of exploiting children after child porn bust

A Flowery Branch man faces 26 felonies after the Hall County Sheriff’s Office investigated a tip into child pornography, authorities said.

The tip was sent to the Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force on Monday, the sheriff’s office said in a news release. Investigators obtained a search warrant for 27-year-old Steven Joseph Robertson’s home off Compass Drive three days later.

Authorities found several electronic devices that Robertson used to obtain at least 26 videos of children “engaged in sexually explicit conduct with adults,” the release said. He’s accused of uploading the videos between May and June of this year.

He was arrested Thursday on 26 counts of sexual exploitation of children. He remained in the Hall County jail without bond Friday, jail records show.

No other information was released. The investigation is ongoing.
