A 44-year-old Brighton man has been arrested after allegedly photographing children on a trampoline.  What makes this a crime is that he is a registered sex offender.  Brian E. Sanders is charged with felony Child Photography by a Sex Offender.

Sanders was convicted of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child in March of 1998.  He allegedly exited his work vehicle and approached the children, who were playing on the trampoline in their backyard.  He asked if he could video them doing flips in order to show his daughter how it’s done.  After he left, Madison County Sheriff’s Department Captain Mike Dixon tells The Big Z the children – one teenager and one pre-teen – told their mother what had happened.
