Fort Bragg soldier accused of posting sex videos featuring underage girls

 June 1, 2023

In a shocking turn of events, a soldier stationed at Fort Bragg has been accused of secretly recording sex acts involving minors before posting the material online. 

The Fayetteville Observer reported this week that 25-year-old Spc. Andrew Gomez is facing a slew of sexually related criminal charges.

The recording said to have been made last August and put online two months later

Among them are five counts of disclosure of private images, four counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and three counts each of third-degree and first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

The exploitation charges are connected with a recording Gomez is alleged to have made in August of last year which depicted himself engaged in sexual activity with an underage girl.

The soldier is then said to have made three video clips of the sexual encounter publicly available online two months later.

Soldier said to have admitted to making a video but told the FBI he did not know the girl's age

Gomez reportedly acknowledged making and uploading the videos during an interview with FBI agents but maintained that he was unaware of the victim's age.

The Observer noted that the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office originally took Gomez into custody on March 21 before being freed on bail.

However, he was arrested again after three additional victims came forward, all of whom maintained that they were secretly recorded without their consent. Gomez is currently being held at the Cumberland County jail with bail set at $130,000.

Maj. Russell Gordon serves as a spokesperson for the 1st Special Forces Command, and he confirmed that Gomez is a visual information specialist in the 1st Special Forces Command who joined the Army in August 2016.

Army "will not tolerate" alleged behavior

What's more, the director of public affairs for the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Lt. Col. Mike Burns issued a statement expressing concern.

"We strongly condemn these alleged actions, which violate the trust and integrity people place upon the Army, Special Operations, and our Soldiers," Burns was quoted as saying.

"It’s against our core organizational values, and we will not tolerate it. The overwhelming majority of our people are ethical and professional members of the community in which they serve," the officer stressed.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has asked anyone with relevant information to contact Detective K. Hamlett at 910-677-5450 or
