Raleigh Photographer Pleads Guilty to Child Sex Charges

Raleigh, N.C. — A Raleigh photographer indicted on child sex charges was sentenced to at least 7 years in prison Monday after pleading guilty to two counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor and one count of first-degree statutory sex offense.
Raleigh police charged Ted Booker in April in connection with allegations involving a 3-year-old girl at his North Raleigh studio in 2006. He was also charged with statutory rape and taking indecent liberties with a 10-year-old girl in the late 1980s.
After being released on a $50,000 bond after his arrest in April, prosecutors said he violated the terms of release, which required to stay away from children and not take photos of them.
He was arrested again and placed in jail under a $750,000 bond. He remained in jail prior to his plea deal Monday.
