OPELIKA, Ala. -

Bradford Lee Davis, 34, of Opelika, has been arrested on 30 counts of obscene matter with the intent to distribute, Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones announced Wednesday afternoon.

Davis, a registered sex offender, has a criminal record involving other sex crimes related to children, including a 2003 arrest in Muscogee County for having an inappropriate relationship with a ten year old girl.

Davis served 10 years in a Georgia State Prison and was released in May 2013. He violated his probation in June 2013 by visiting a public place where there were children and was placed in the Lee County Detention Facility. At that point, an investigation into the actions revealed the obscene materials.

"It's probably an understatement to say it's very disturbing, I'll just leave it at that," said Sheriff Jones at a news conference on Wednesday.

Sheriff Jones would not go into detail about how the evidence was  recovered, but did say multiple victims were involved.

The investigation looked into his actions while an inmate at the Georgia state prison. It was a 3-month, joint investigation by Lee County Sheriff's Office Investigators, Wilcox County Georgia State Prison Investigators, AUburn Police Division Detectives and Lee County State Parole Officers.

 Davis is being held at the Lee County Detention Facility with a bond set at $150,000. His charges are a Class-B Felony, which carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
