Two Georgia men have been charged with allegedly using their adopted children to produce pornographic material, according at the Walton County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO).
Authorities charged William Dale Zulock, 32, and Zachary Jacoby Zulock, 35, on July 28 with pending charges of aggravated child abuse and child sexual exploitation. William Zulock also received an additional charge of child molestation, WSB-TV mentionted.
Detectives initially executed a search warrant at a home in Loganville on July 27 at approximately 4:00 p.m. after receiving information from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation that an individual was allegedly downloading child sexual abuse material.
When detectives interviewed the unidentified suspect after the raid, they reportedly discovered that the individual had been receiving child pornography from another suspect. In addition, they reportedly discovered that the other suspect produced the material with at least one child in the same home where they both lived.
After further investigation, authorities raided a home later that day in Oxford, 35 miles east of Atlanta, at 11:30 p.m., where they believed two young children were inside with two adult male suspects, identified as the couple Zuclock.
A children’s services team also joined the raid with authorities to ensure the two young children got out safely.
“During the execution of the search warrant, evidence emerged that both adult males—the stepfathers of the pair of brothers who resided at the home—engaged in sexually abusive acts and video footage documenting that abuse,” WSCO said.
Both William and Zachary Zulock were booked into the Walton County Jail early the next morning.
WSCO noted that the two young boys rescued from the home are now safe. The sheriff’s office also noted that the investigation is ongoing.
