Warrant: Dad exposed 7-year-old daughter to porn, nudity during his visitation time (Cornelius, North Carolina)

What is not made explicit here: that this sexual abuse took place during UNNAMED DAD's visitation time. The mother no longer lived in the home. Was this court-ordered visitation? Were there allegations or evidence of previous abuse that were swept under the rug? These are the unanswered questions here.

CORNELIUS, NC (WBTV) - A Charlotte second-grade girl has told FBI agents that her father has exposed her to so much pornography and nudity that she has those images in her head constantly, making her stomach and head hurt.

The girl, 7 years old, first told a teacher on Nov. 14 about her father taking nude photos of her as she finishes showering "and it makes her feel ‘yuck'," according to an FBI search warrant of the man's apartment.

The man and his wife live apart and the girl experiences nudity and masturbation – in real life and digitally – frequently when she visits her Cornelius father's home, she told 2 FBI agents on Nov. 15, the search warrant said. The parents had been married for 9 years but, divorced in July 2011 after 2 years apart.

She told a teacher that her father took photos of her "with a towel around her head and another around her body and daddy had me hold the towel around my body up to take a picture down there," according to the search warrant, which was returned to a magistrate on Dec. 13 said.

At the father's house, which she last visited Nov. 9, she is also exposed to him "shaking his boy parts" while he is defecating in a bathroom and during a trip to a beach-front resort in Myrtle Beach, the warrant said.

"The child said she watched 4 girls lick each other's (breasts) and then touch each other," the search warrant said. She frequently is made to watch her father visit porn websites while he "shakes his boy parts," the warrant said.

The girl also said that her father gave her a cell phone which he has loaded with nude photos of himself that "she is not allowed to take the phone out of the home," the warrant said.

At one point, the girl said she saw her nude photos on her father's computer, the warrant said. The father then joked about putting them on Facebook, the girl told the FBI.

"The child victim ... sees the pictures everywhere in her head -- when she is sleeping, looking at a wall or starring at the playground and that it makes her stomach and head hurt," the warrant said.

On Nov. 18, the FBI seized 12 laptop computers, six external storage devices, including one with 500 GB of storage, 2 iPhones and a Blackberry phone.

The man has not been arrested or charged, but the FBI investigation is continuing as agents sort through massive amounts of computer data.
