A Detroit man who is believed to be behind a widely-shared video of child pornography is in custody in Alabama.

Germaine Moore, 44, surrendered to police in Millbrook, Ala. around 2:30 a.m., according to the Montgomery Advertiser.

Moore is also accused of sexually assaulting three young family members.

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office has charged Moore with first degree criminal sexual conduct and sexual abusive activity.

They say some of the assaults happened while Moore was babysitting the children in Detroit while their mother was at work.

Prosecutors say these crimes were committed between 2011 until 2017, both at his home in Alabama and at his mother's home in Detroit.

The three victims are all children under the age of 13. 

Moore's fiance was arrested Monday night and is not cooperating.  Another man was arrested for initially distributing the video.
