An arrest warrant out of Gwinnett County in Georgia says Smith is a fugitive from the state. According to the warrants, Smith is being charged with aggravated child molestation, using computer services to lure and entice children to commit illegal acts, among other crimes. 

Smith was denied bond on a Fugitive from Justice Warrant. Until he can be extradited to Gwinnett County, he will remain in Oconee County's custody.
