A Gainesville man allegedly showed an underage girl a pornographic video and then exposed himself to her, according to authorities.

Zackery Levi Smith, 28, was arrested Thursday, Feb. 27 and charged with child molestation and furnishing obscene material to a minor.

The Hall County Division of Family and Children Services’ office gave information Jan. 3 to the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.

“According to the initial investigation, Smith showed the victim, a female child under the age of 16, a pornographic video of himself and an adult female. He also touched the inner thigh of the victim and exposed his genitals to her,” Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth wrote in an email.

Booth said the incidents allegedly happened between June of last year and January at a North Hall residence. Smith knew the girl before the incidents, Booth said.

Investigators obtained a warrant Feb. 26.

Smith was booked into the Hall County Jail, where he is being held without a bond.

The case is still under investigation.

Attorney Matt Leipold did not return a request for comment.
