Internet crimes against children unit detectives charged Douglas Neal Summers, 62, of Ramsey Street, with especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor, according to a Nov. 5 release.

According to police, the victim was about 10 years old at the time, and the photos were apparently taken while she slept at a home on Scenic View Drive in Old Hickory. Police said Summers then posted them to a Russian website to view.

The release said an investigation into the incident revealed the victim was the granddaughter of Summers’ ex-girlfriend who frequently spent the night with them when the suspect lived on Scenic View Drive.

According to detectives, Summers told police his internet profile folders that included the images had received more than 1 million views.

Officers booked Summers on a $75,000 bond, and the U.S. Homeland Security Investigation aided in the case.
