The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office has arrested a juvenile offender on a charge of Especially Aggravated Sexually Exploitation of a Minor.

Joint efforts by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division, and the Hamilton County School Resource Division have been working to send a strong message that any person in possession of or distributing images of a minor that are of sexual content will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted, Officer Janice Atkinson said in a news release.

"Computer devices in the hands of juveniles who have unlimited internet access and little or no supervision has been a growing problem for law enforcement," Atkinson said in the release. "We ask anyone observing or suspecting sexual material involving a minor on the internet be reported immediately."
