Attorney for Decatur man accused of possessing child pornography is negotiating with prosecution
Nearly two years after a Decatur man’s arrest on charges of sexual exploitation of children, the District Attorney’s Office says he may enter a guilty plea.
His attorney says he is in negotiations with the prosecution.
Douglas Solomon, a man in his 70s, was arrested at a residence on West Davis Street in July of 2017. A Grand Jury subsequently indicted him on 10 counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children. The indictment alleges that Solomon possessed photos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
According to Georgia Law, each violation could result in a five year minimum prison sentence and a maximum prison sentence of 20 years.
A spokesperson for the District Attorney’s Office said, “We anticipate the defendant may enter a guilty plea to the indicted charges. … The hearing is scheduled for Friday, April 12, 2019.”
Solomon’s attorney, Tracy Reeves, confirmed he is in negotiations with the prosecution but declined to comment on the specifics of the case.
