DARIEN - McIntosh County is looking for a new animal-control director to replace one charged with having pornography on a computer.

County Manager Luther Smart fired Harry "Doc" Kinard, 54, on Jan. 25. Kinard was arrested on Nov. 2 after pornographic images were found on a laptop computer at the county's animal control facility.

Smart said authorities were acting on a tip from another animal control employee when they seized the computer. Kinard's home computer was also taken and sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Results of a forensic examination have not been returned.

Smart said his termination of Kinard was justified since he has been charged with sexual exploitation of children. He had been suspended indefinitely without pay.

"We had sufficient grounds for termination, plus he was still in his six-month probation period," Smart said.

During probation, an employed may be let go for any reason, Smart said. Kinard began work in mid-August.
