Man charged with videotaping sex acts with an underage girl


A Georgia man has been jailed in Rowan County, accused of videotaping sex acts with an underage girl.

Dalton Smallwood, 43, was charged with five counts of taking indecent liberties with a child, five counts of statutory rape,  one count of first degree sexual exploitation of a minor, and one count third degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

According to the report, Smallwood, who now lives in Georgia, was involved in a sexual relationship with an underage girl in 2011.  Smallwood met the girl at a church when both parties lived in southern Rowan County.

On June 30 of this year, the girl, who is now an adult, approached her father and told him about the relationship with Smallwood.  The father contacted the Rowan Sheriff's Office and an investigation began.

Smallwood was 36 years old at the time and the alleged victim was 15 years old.

Investigators say Smallwood and the girl had sex several times at her home, his home, and at other locations, including an abandoned house in southern Rowan County.

In two cases Smallwood allegedly made a video depicting a sex act between the two.

The alleged victim also provided investigators with a diary documenting the relationship.

Smallwood was booked in the Rowan County jail.

Bond was set at $300,000.

Smallwood was also charged in Iredell County, where he is accused of sexually assaulting a minor in 2012.
