Registered sex offender arrested on sexual exploitation charges in Clayton County

FOREST PARK — A 30-year-old registered sex offender was arrested Tuesday in Clayton County and charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of children for alleged possession of child pornography.

On Tuesday, April 28, 2020, Vincent Hughes, of Forest Park, a registered sex offender, was arrested by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Squad on an active warrant out of Douglas County regarding a probation violation.

Hughes was also charged with failure to register as a sex offender in Clayton County and two counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children (Possession of Child Pornography).


An investigation into Hughes by the GBI began after officials say information was received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding the possible upload and possession of child pornography by Hughes to a popular social media application. 

Hughes is currently being held at the Clayton County Jail. This is an active investigation and further arrest warrants may be pending.

Anyone with information about this case or any other cases of child exploitation is asked to contact the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit at 404-270-8870.
