EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

An Effingham County Corrections Officer has been arrested on felony charges after he sent obscene messages online to a teenager.

Troy Bohannon, 45, is being charged with obscene Internet contact with a child. The investigation and arrest was a joint effort by the Screven County Sheriff's Office and the Effingham County Sheriff's Office.

Bohannon, of Sylvania, was contacting a child in person that then moved to inappropriate messages online.

The teen's grandparent alerted the Screven County Sheriff's Office, and that is when the Effingham County Sheriff's Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force got involved.

Bohannon has been working at the Effingham County Prison. The inappropriate messages had been going on for weeks.
