New child porn charges for ex-Forsyth church intern

The former Forsyth County church youth ministry intern arrested in March on child molestation charges has been re-arrested in Dawson County and charged with 29 counts of sexual exploitation of children.

Sean Paul was arrested Friday, according to Dawson County Jail records. Paul, 28, is being held without bond in the county jail.

Channel 2 Action News reported that Paul, who was an intern at First Christian Church in Cumming, was arrested in March and charged with felony child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes. Paul resigned from the church before his arrest.

Dawson sheriff’s Capt. Tony Wooten said the new charges stem from child pornography allegedly found on computers and electronic equipment in Paul’s Dawsonville home following his March arrest.
