An officer with the Arizona Department of Corrections has been arrested and charged after multiple images of child pornography were discovered on his personal computer.
On 4/12/2012, Members of the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children
Task Force with the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and the Casa Grande
Police Department responded to a computer repair shop in Casa Grande
after a technician reported a computer that had been brought in by a
customer for repair, identified as Jeffrey Williams, 46, of Casa Grande,
contained images of children being sexually abused.
Detectives with CGPD seized the computer and obtained a search warrant
to have the hard drive examined. Investigators with the PCSO Computer
Forensic Lab were able to pull several images including videos of
children being sexually abused.
Based on the materials found, an arrest warrant for Williams was issued
as well as search warrant for his residence.
Agents with the US Marshall’s Office Fugitive Apprehension Team assisted
in arresting Williams at the Arizona DOC prison in Florence where
Williams works as a corrections officer.
