Ex-officers allegedly watched porn with girls, gave them alcohol

KNOXVILLE (WATE) -- Court documents say two former Knoxville police officers are accused of allowing a pair of 13-year-old girls to watch bondage pornography on a computer, giving them alcohol and watching them dance partially undressed.

Nicky R. Bryant and Donald Scott Clark both resigned in July with minor offenses on their records.

Bryant and Clark haven't been charged in this case, but detectives with the Knox County Sheriff's Office are investigating allegations of sexual abuse and contributing to the delinquency of minors.

Bryant's house on Bland Lane was searched Tuesday and an affidavit supporting the warrant was filed.

In that affidavit, sheriff's office Detective Amylynn Delgado wrote that she was seeking evidence "depicting nudity, sexual conduct, or sado-masochistic abuse ... that is harmful to minors."

That included material the girls had allegedly watched on Braynt's computer.

The affidavit describes several accusations one of the girls made against Bryant and Clark.

She told Detective Delgado that Bryant picked them up and took them to his house frequently. They even stayed overnight at times.

She said she slept in the same bed with Bryant at times, but nothing sexual happened.

Bryant and Clark gave them alcohol more than once and they would "dance with their shirts off and bikini tops on," the girl said.

She also told investigators she started watching pornography at Bryant's house when she was 11 or 12 and it was on his computer in a spare bedroom.

Bryant and Clark watched the pornography with the girls, she told investigators.

"...one of these videos contained images of a female being bound with rope" and "the female on the video was then sexually penetrated and thrown out of the house into the street still bound with ropes," the girl said in the affidavit. Another video showed "a female dressed to appear as a schoolgirl."

The 15-year-old brother of one girl told investigators he'd seen Bryant watch porn in front of his them.

He also said Bryant "erased the pornographic videos from his computer after the start of the current investigation."

Another sheriff's office detective helping with the investigation, Mark Harvey, believed "the computer files may still be recoverable if they have not been overwritten," Delgado wrote in the affidavit.

Investigators seized DVDs (including one called "Fresh Butts and Natural Tits"), a digital camera, a VHS tape, a multimedia card and a printer, along with other items.
