Naked girl found in Raleigh man's car
Posted June 24, 2009
Raleigh, N.C. — Garner police charged a Raleigh man with taking indecent liberties with a child Monday.
An off-duty deputy called police after he spotted Jonathan Leigh Sullivan, 41, parked in an undeveloped subdivision. Officers found a toddler boy and a preteen girl with him in his car.
Officers spotted the boy, but found the girl only after a search. She was naked and hiding under a tarp.
The search warrant in the case said the girl told officers she spent time with Sullivan in their "quiet place." She gave officers a reason why she was naked, the warrant said, but later changed her story.
According to the warrant, officers also seized some photos, a camera, a laptop computer and some computer discs from Sullivan's car.
After reviewing the photos, officers charged Sullivan with two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. His $25,000 bond was also increased by $200,000.
Sullivan was being held Wednesday evening in the Wake County Jail. He will make his first court appearance Thursday evening.
