Alabama couple jailed on multiple child sex, child porn charges: Cops

A south Alabama couple already charged with child sex abuse have now had child pornography added to their charge sheet, WSFA reports.

John Bright, 49, and Tiffany Hughes, 32, were initially arrested in September when the Dale County Sheriff’s Office received a tip about sexual abuse involving a minor child under the age 12 and launched an investigation.

Both were charged with first degree rape and sexual abuse of a child less than 12. Additionally, Bright was charged with first degree sodomy and electronic solicitation of a child.

Investigators said at the time they anticipated further charges. This week, Bright and Hughes were charged with 11 counts of possession of child pornography, 11 counts of parents or guardians permitting children to engage in the production of obscene material, and one count of enticing a child for immoral purposes.

Bright was also charged with first degree human trafficking.

Chief Deputy Mason Bynum said that investigators were not releasing details because of the sensitive nature of the case. The State Bureau of Investigation and Federal Bureau of Investigation are assisting.

Bynum described Bright and Hughes as an unmarried couple.

They’re being held in the Dale County Jail, Bright on a $1.1 million bail and Hughes on a bail of more than $1 million.
