Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents and DeKalb County sheriff’s deputies charged a DeKalb County man with sex trafficking that involved a 15-year-old girl.

During the investigation, authorities determined in early August, Charles Denton, 33, of DeKalb County, recruited the child through social media and took her from her home in DeKalb County to a motel in Nashville to have her participate in commercial sex acts.

On Aug. 25, a DeKalb County grand jury returned an indictment that charged Denton with one count of trafficking for a commercial sex act. Authorities arrested and booked him in at the DeKalb County Jail on $250,000 bond.
