UPDATE: 03/28/18 

New charges for the man authorities believe is behind a child porn video that was all over social media back in February. 

The U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Alabama announced 11 federal counts against 44-year-old Germaine Moore Tuesday. 

Authorities discovered new evidence in the case on an SD Card which Law Enforcement officials say Moore didn’t want to give up. 

-“That should send a message to everybody, about his level of offenses and how dangerous he is to any child at any point, which is why we are going to work together and why we are going to use every resource to make sure he does not get out of jail ever.” – Brook Walker 

Moore also faces charges in Michigan.

UPDATE: 02/06/18 4:00 p.m.

A man arrested in Alabama in connection with a widely-circulated child porn video also has been charged in Detroit in the sexual assault of three young female relatives.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Tuesday that 44-year-old Germaine Moore is expected to be extradited to Michigan on criminal sexual conduct and other charges.

The assaults are alleged to have occurred in Detroit between 2011 and 2017.

Moore was being sought after authorities became aware of the video that shows a young girl performing oral sex on an adult. The video circulated on Facebook and other social media.

Moore surrendered at about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday to police in Millbrook, Alabama, and is charged in that state with sexual assault of a child, distribution of video depicting the assault and first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
