Clare Co. Parents Arrested for Child Abuse

Posted: Updated:

A mother and father are now in jail tonight, accused of exposing their children to sexually explicit materials and acts.

They were arrested for child abuse after a 9 month investigation in Harrison.

Police say the children had been exposed to the sexually explicit material and actions for quite some time.

One of those children began acting out some of the things he had seen at home.

This led to the arrest of Dale Bradburn and Samantha Demars.

They are both being charged with six counts of child abuse, and one count of distributing sexually explicit material to minors.

Police say what was going on inside their home, was extremely dangerous.

9 & 10's Meredith Barack and photojournalist Jeff Blakeman spoke with investigators and have more details on what they uncovered.
