Lincoln County Man Jailed For Sex Crimes Involving a Minor


In Stanford, an investigation is ongoing and a man was taken into custody and charged with sex crimes involving a minor. 19 year old Sawyer Carey was arrested as a result of an undercover internet crimes against children investigation. The investigation was sparked when the Kentucky State Police Crime Branch saw Sawyer was allegedly uploading the sexually explicit images onto the internet.

KSP seized the equipment used to facilitate the crime, and is now at the forensic laboratory. Carey is charged with two counts of possession of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor, but additional charges could come about as the investigation progresses. He is lodged in the Lincoln County Detention Center.
