A Madison couple has been charged with
taking sexually explicit photos of a 4-year-old child.
Court records show that Sean Hales was indicted by a grand jury
on two counts of child exploitation. His wife, Amiee Hales, was
indicted on one exploitation count.
Authorities said the child, now 5, told a relative in March that
Sean Hales had photographed his genitalia.
Assistant District Attorney Jamie McBride said the two were not
arrested until after the indictment was issued.
Their attorney, Charles Mullins, said Friday that his clients
are not guilty.
According to the indictment, Sean Hales is accused of taking
sexually explicit photos of the child and keeping the images on a
computer at his home in Madison.
His wife is accused of having the photos as well.
