Georgia police arrested a man and accused him of child abuse, among other charges, after finding a diary that allegedly described his nefarious deeds, as reported by New York Post.
Timothy Sprenger, 31, was arrested September 22 after an investigator met with a complainant “who presented what appeared to be a diary” written by the suspect, according to MDJ Online.
Authorities initially held him at the Paulding County Jail, around 27 miles northwest of Atlanta. However, once detectives determined he didn’t commit the alleged crimes in Georgia, they shipped him to the Ward County Jail in North Dakota.
“After further examination of the document, it appeared that these incidents occurred several years ago in North Dakota,” Paulding County Sgt., Ashley Henson, said.
The diary had been shredded to pieces, allegedly by Sprenger, but detectives taped it back together. Authorities alleged that it contained references to a number of gruesome sexual encounters with children, with the victims ranging in age from 6 months to 2 years old.
Investigators in North Dakota managed to locate two of the children referenced in the diary, who are now both 12 years old, as reported by 11Alive. Their parents have been informed of Sprenger’s alleged actions, authorities said.
Police noted that Sprenger confessed to the crimes detailed in his diary, as well as some other offenses which have yet to be announced. He was extradited back to North Dakota on October 5 to face justice and is currently being held with a bond of $100,000.
He is being charged with Gross Sexual Imposition and Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child, though more charges may be forthcoming.
