Greenwood photographer arrested for child exploitation

Alan Fork, 42, was arrested Tuesday.

A Greenwood photographer is being held on charges that he exploited a 16-year-old girl.

Police say the girl's mother contacted the department about 42-year-old Alan Fork, for whom the teenager was modeling. Fork had run a modeling agency in Indianapolis before moving the business to his Greenwood apartment.

On June 22, Fork picked the girl up and took her to his apartment to do a photo shoot involving lingerie and swim wear for an agency in Chicago he had told her about earlier. When the teenager got nervous about the photographs, she said Fork gave her some vodka and Adderall to calm her down, police say.

The girl told investigators she blacked out and when she woke up, Fork was on top of her, performing sexual intercourse. After the intercourse, Fork let the girl get dressed and drove her home.

The next day, police say, the girl became ill and collapsed at home. She was taken to the hospital, where she told her mother what happened at Fork's apartment studio the night before.

Police executing a search warrant of Fork's apartment seized hard drives and electronic media. Among the items seized, detectives found video of Fork engaging in sexual intercourse with the teenage victim on two separate occasions. Police also found digital photographs which showed the victim posing in lingerie that exposed her genitals.

Fork was taken into custody Tuesday at his mother's residence in Greenwood. He is being held on four felony counts of child exploitation, one count of felony voyeurism and a misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor on a $100,000 bond.
