A former Mount Juliet police officer is facing charges of sexual exploitation of a minor, the TBI announced on Thursday.
Cody Mang, 33, was arrested on Thursday on four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after a months-long investigation by TBI agents.
TBI agents received information around December 2020 via a cybertip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children indicating that an individual had uploaded multiple files of child sexual abuse material to his personal email account.
During the course of the investigations, agents identified the suspect as Mang, who was an officer with the Mount Juliet Police Department at the time. Mang was fired shortly after the allegations surfaced.
