Former Corrections Officer Leon Brooks Sr Arrested for having Child Porn

A former JSO corrections officer is facing charges related to child pornography.

Leon Perry Brooks Sr., 39, is facing two counts of receipt of child pornography, one count of distribution of child pornography, and one count of possession of child pornography.

The indictment shows the reported offenses took place between June 19, 2012, and May 20, 2013, and involve a number of computer files showing minors engaged in sexually-explicit conduct.

Brooks' next court date is Dec. 27 at 3:30 p.m.

Brooks was employed with the agency from April 20, 2000, until his resignation on Nov. 1, 2013.  Brooks resigned, according to JSO, with an undisclosed medical disability.

He is the second JSO corrections officer to be arrested this week.  Prosecutors indicted Harold Walbey III a week ago for tax fraud. Investigators say he took seven names to file tax returns for 2010 and 2011.  Walbey also faces wire fraud and aggravated identity theft charges.
