Updated 2/23/2011 – I finally came across Neff’s mug shot above and will end up cross-posting this at my crime site as well.
Apparently Neff is from Denver, North Carolina and drove down to Dalton, Georgia from Charlotte, North Carolina in order to molest what he thought was a child. Neff had a bond appearance on Tuesday. It was denied. He has another court appearance in Whitfield County on Friday.
