Local Sodomy Case Continues To Expand

Charges against a man accused of sexually molesting an unconscious man continues to grow, according to Chattooga County Jail reports.

Originally Micheal Shedd, 38, was accused of aggravated sodomy, misdemeanor sexual battery and unlawfully recording a sex act without consent.

As of this weekend, Summerville Police officials have added another charge — felony exploitation of a child, according to jail reports.

Details of his new charges have not been released. However, the previous sodomy incident involved a man in his 20s, according to Summerville Police Detective Brian Ozment.
“[The original case] was not a stranger on stranger kind of thing. They were acquainted with each other,” according to Ozment.
The incident happened during the early morning hours of March 31 at a residence on Marvin Avenue.
“[Shedd] basically performed sodomy on the victim while he was unconscious and then videotaped the act. It was a voluntary intoxication,” Det. Ozment said.
Allegedly, Shedd was not intoxicated, or as intoxicated when the incident occurred. The victim passed out.
“[The victim] figured out that he had been victimized and came to report it to law enforcement,” Det. Ozment said.
Warrants were filed against Shedd for aggravated sodomy, sexual battery and unlawful surveillance of a sex act, according to Det. Ozment.
Shedd has since been found in Walker County.
