EFFINGHAM COUNTY, GA -

Another potential child predator is off the streets. Thursday night deputies arrested Ronald Mullins at his home on Barrister Circle in Guyton.

The Georgia Internet Crimes against Children Task Force served the search warrant after gathering evidence the 50-year old downloaded more than 100 images and videos of children on his computer. Mullins is charged with sexual exploitation of children and possession of child pornography.

Some of those images were of children as young as 4 years old.

News 3's Andrew Davis spoke with Mullins during his arrest.

"I don't want people to think I'm a sexual predator because I'm not," said Mullins. "There were just some things I downloaded online and that's it. I never distributed them to anybody else. I never looked at anybody else. I don't look at kids and go ooh. No I don't."

"I am what I am. I've been labeled what I am. It was something very personal. No one knew about it but me. I never looked at kids around here. I never looked at kids where I had live before. Its just what it is."
"How is anyone supposed to believe that?"
"They aren't. That's just the way it is."
"What would you tell your sons?"
"I'm sorry. I hope they don't have the disease that I have.
"Why do you call it a disease?"
"What would you call it? Its a disease. I hate it. I hate myself for it."
"I ruined my wife's life. that's all I can tell you. Its going to be on the news so everybody's going to know what I can."

Mullins is being held in the Effingham County Jail pending a bond hearing.
