Dale Co. man accused of child porn possession, child sex abuse, & bestiality

Local News

SKIPPERVILLE, Ala. (WDHN) — A Dale County man is facing numerous charges for sex crimes, according to official records.

Jason Park, 39, of Skipperville, was first arrested by the Alabama Attorney General’s Office on Nov. 25, 2019, on 10 possession of child pornography charges.

According to complaints filed against Park, the videos contain multiple victims, the youngest being a toddler and the oldest being a 13-year-old boy. Judging from the video titles described in the documents, the files contain various acts of sexual assault against children, including rape and incest.

The complaints in these cases state there is probable cause to believe that Park allegedly possessed these videos between Dec. 5, 2018, to Nov. 5, 2019.

Two days later, authorities arrested Park again on two counts of sexual abuse of a minor under 12 years of age and two counts of producing obscene material. The videos described in these complaints reportedly show a minor being fondled.

Park also has a bestiality charge on his Dale County inmate roster profile, although no court records have been filed in relation to that charge.

Park was given a bail amount of $281,000 and was told not to be in contact with anyone under 15 years old, according to jail and court records. As of this report, he is still listed as being in the Dale County Jail after being booked again at 4:26 p.m. Monday.

Court documents show no previous felony convictions on Park’s record.

The attorney general’s office submitted a motion Monday to amend Park’s bond on the more serious charges, saying that the amount of $2,500 given to the Class A and B felonies are far too low compared to the recommended range. They also said the state was not given a chance to request a bond amount and present their argument against the defendant concerning the nature of the charges.

“Given the nature of these offenses, Defendant poses a danger to others and the public at large and this factor should have been considered before setting a bond well below the recommended bail schedule,” the motion states.

As a result, the state wants to have another meeting to reconsider the bond and have it fall in line with the minimum bail recommended for the felonies.

Dale County residents were sickened and unhappy about the charges.

“Yes sir my opinion on that is really such a disgrace to this community,” a Dale County resident by the name of Brenda said.

We’re currently collecting more information on this case.

UPDATE:

Park was released from jail at 2:05 p.m. on Tuesday.
