On Thursday in Fayette District Court, Brooks pleaded not guilty to Sexual Abuse 1st Degree and Operating a Motor Vehicle while Under the Influence (drugs).
According to an arrest warrant, last July, while working for Time Warner Cable in a customer’s home, the mother asked her 7-year old daughter to take Brooks to the cable router in the basement.
When the girl came up out of the basement, her mother noticed her acting differently than when she went to the basement, according to an arrest warrant.
The girl told investigators that while in the basement, Brooks exposed himself and touched himself inappropriately in front of her.
When police questioned Brooks, he denied the girl’s claims and said he had inappropriate pictures of himself on his cell phone and that the girl must have seen the photos since his phone was sitting in her presence.
He also told investigators that he had sent the photos to a woman. When police contacted the woman, she told investigators she had never received any naked photos of Brooks, according to the arrest warrant.
Investigators said they searched Brooks’ cell phone and found that the child would have needed to scroll through at least 23-photos before finding a nude photo of Brooks, according to the arrest warrant.
Police said Brooks was arrested Wednesday, December 17, after he was involved in a car crash near Midland Avenue and East Second Street.
Investigators said Brooks was driving under the influence of drugs.
Time Warner Cable said Brooks worked for the company for just over a year, but that he was no longer an employee.
