(Memphis) Memphis Police have charged two juveniles in connection with a photo that has been passed around via social media and email.

The photo shows a child, believed to be 2-years-old, in a sexual situation with an adult male.

According to police, “The ICAC Unit has charged 2 juveniles (16 and 13) with Aggravated Sexual Exploitation of a Minor. Both juveniles were found to be responsible for distributing the photo of the child.”

Detectives say they continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding this case and do expect additional charges in connection with this image.  

Controversial Memphis talk show host Thaddeus Matthews is free on bond due to sexual exploitation of a minor charges.

Memphis Police say he posted the picture on his Facebook page of a child and an adult engaged in a sex act on his Facebook page.

It’s a picture we warned you about on News Channel 3, and told you not to share.

Matthews defended himself on Facebook saying he posted it trying to help police identify who took it.

Before his arrest, Matthews posted on Facebook again, “I hope you understand the reason for the post if you don’t, you probably never need to come to this page. It was and still is my goal to find out who some have told me is a man from Memphis that is doing the most disgusting thing i have ever seen.” 

Police Director Toney Armstrong said that’s the wrong thing to do.

Armstrong said if you receive this email, report it to police and then delete it.

Do not share it in any form or for any reason.
