ORMOND BEACH, FL – Brandon Shelton is in big trouble and, according to charges filed against him by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, might have even more troubles ahead.

Shelton has been arrested and charged with 11 counts of possessing child pornography and six counts of sexual activity involving animals after the Volusia Sheriff’s Office was alerted via a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Shelton, 29, was arrested Tuesday on a warrant as a result of the investigation conducted by the VSO’s Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) since October 2021

During the investigation, 11 electronic files of videos and photos were located that portrayed children in sexually exploitative situations. The victims were estimated to range from as young as 2 or 3 years old to 7 to 9. Shelton told detectives he had downloaded and forwarded suspected child pornography. In addition, Shelton said he was the male subject wearing a gold watch in videos while having sexual contact with his wife’s dog.

On Jan. 6, 2022, detectives executed a search warrant at Shelton’s home, where they interviewed Shelton. They seized multiple items, electronics, his gold watch and two family dogs. The dogs were turned over to Volusia County Animal Services.

Detectives do not believe Shelton manufactured child pornography. He has been released from the Volusia County Branch Jail on $116,000 bail.
