A Fort Bragg soldier is in the Rowan County Detention Center today after deputies charged him with felony indecent liberties with children.
According to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report, Nathaniel Brian Dempsey, a member of the Army Special Forces, reportedly chatted in a Yahoo chatroom with a Sheriff’s Office investigator, who posed as a 14-year-old girl.
Dempsey, of 2658 Green Heron Drive, Fayetteville, initially contacted the undercover deputy on July 5. According to the report, the investigator was invited to a webcam session where he witnessed Dempsey “acting inappropriately while at the computer.”
Dempsey was using the screen name Lil Kryptonite 1, the report said, and sent the undercover investigator another session invitation on July 13.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, investigators used DMV and Yahoo records to identify the man. After an initial search, deputies contacted the Fort Bragg Criminal Investigations Department, which identified the man.
On Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office searched the man’s home and seized his computer.
The 32-year-old has been charged with two counts of felony indecent liberties with children and two counts of misdemeanor disseminating harmful material to minors.
He was given at $75,000 bond.
