Detroit man allegedly behind widely shared child porn video arrested in Alabama

Last week, FOX43 warned you about a video involving the sexual assault of a child that was being shared on Facebook by many people who just wanted to help.

After investigators looked into Moore's background, his extensive rap sheet was revealed, with 11 felony charges spanning across multiple states.

ABC2 News is neither publishing nor airing the video, but according to police it shows a child engaging in a sexual act with an adult.

Many social media users have attempted to share the video in hopes to identify and capture the man committing the assault on the young girl. However, police departments around the country, including Maryland Heights and Hazelwood in the St. Louis area, urged people on social media to stop sharing the video or images.

Meanwhile, we're told Moore's fiance has also been arrested for interfering with the police investigation. He said that if a video pops up, and you accidentally view the pornography and had no intention of doing so, you should report it to authorities immediately.

44-year-old Germaine Moore has been charged with Sexual Assault of a Child, Distribution of Video Depicting the Assault Criminal Sexual Conduct 1st Degree, and other charges are pending.

There's a viral video going around on social media that's showing apparent child pornography. Authorities arrested her and charged her with hindering prosecution.

Alabama Law enforcement officials said Moore is 6 feet tall and 214 pounds.

The MPD says they are aware of the video and its contents and there is no need to send it to them. Instead, police recommend deleting child pornography if you receive it and contacting either local police or the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force at 440-886-5284, WFMJ reported. Do not share it, as criminal charges may result.

Alabama Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force say Moore will be transported to the Elmore County Detention Facility Tuesday evening.

"We do not allow the sharing of child exploitative images on Facebook or Messenger - even to express outrage". Facebook will notify the proper authorities when an inappropriate video is reported.
