Haralson County Investigators Release Additional Information In Griffith Case

On Wednesday, December 15, 2021, the Haralson County Sheriff’s Office was asked to investigate a case by the Buchanan Police Department. The Buchanan Police Department had received a phone call from a concerned citizen that a male inside Kimball’s store in Buchanan had been taking photographs of a juvenile.
Investigators with the Haralson County Sheriff’s Office worked with Buchanan Police Department to get video from the store and other information. In the store video, the male is seen zooming his phone screen in and/or photographing the buttocks of a mother and the buttocks and groin area of her daughter who is under the age of 12 years old.
The male was identified as Joseph Baine Griffith, 62 years old from Buchanan GA. He was arrested and charged with two counts of Use or Installation of Device to Film Through and Individual’s Clothing Under Certain Circumstances.
“Protecting the children in our county is a priority for me”, states Sheriff Stacy Williams. “A parent should be able to take their children into any store in this county and be safe, they should not have to worry about someone violating them by photographing their child’s private areas. We will always work to protect our children in Haralson County.”
This investigation is still active and ongoing so no other information can be released at this time.
