The Sandy Springs doctor under indictment for child molestation and facing identity theft charges for allegedly using another name to obtain a U.S. Passport is facing more charges in relation to child pornography.
Detectives have charged Kelly Thrasher with an additional four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after a forensic inspection of his laptop revealed four pornographic photos of a child, the Sandy Springs Police Department said in a press release.
Sandy Springs police on May 18 issued arrest warrants for Trasher on identity fraud and forgery in the second degree charges after he allegedly obtained the passport under another name.
The doctor initially arranged to turn himself in to Sandy Springs detectives, but did not show up at the meeting.
Thrasher was located and arrested on May 21 in a Miami hotel room and had about $30,000 in cash with him at the time of his arrest by U.S. Marshals.
indicted in early 2013 on child molestation, sexual battery and aggravated sexual battery following a police investigation that started in November 2012.
Earlier this year, Thrasher was arrested and charged with practicing medicine without a license. That charge stems from complaints that Thrasher was seeing patients in his office, which violates the Georgia State Licensing Board's suspension of his license pending the disposition of the earlier cases.
