He has since been transported to the Sullivan County jail in Blountville.On Jan. 15 a Sullivan County grand jury returned true bills against Brooks on 79 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. The now unsealed indictment states the incidents occurred on or around May 10 of 2012, with the images containing a minor engaged in simulated sexual activity that's "patently offensive."
