Georgia police arrested a man who allegedly described molesting children, including an infant, in his diary, MDJ Online reported on Monday.
Timothy Sprenger, 31, was arrested late last month after the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office met with a tipster in June who handed over what appeared to be Sprenger’s diary.
The account, which was found ripped up and taped back together, described several encounters in which Sprenger allegedly molested at least two children in North Dakota, with the victims ranging between 6 months old and 2 years old.
“After further examination of the document, it appeared that these incidents occurred several years ago in North Dakota,” Sgt. Ashley Henson said to MDJ Online.
The sheriff’s office was able to identify one of the victim’s mothers from the diary entries, and she was reportedly able to verify the timeline of the events. An additional victim was later located and identified. Both children are now 12 years old.
Investigators questioned Sprenger about the diary and he allegedly confessed to the disturbing encounters, including additional instances of sexual abuse that he had not written about in his journal. The events allegedly all occurred in North Dakota and not Georgia.
After being extradited to North Dakota, Sprenger is being held on a $1 million bond on charges of gross sexual imposition and continuous sexual abuse of a child.
