GONZALES -- Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s Cyber Crimes Unit has arrested Gonzales resident John Raymond Williams, 53, for child pornography possession. At the time of his arrest, Williams indicated he is a seventh grade science teacher with the Gonzales ISD.
The Cyber Crimes Unit’s investigation into Williams originated with a referral from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Based on the NCMEC referral, Cyber Crimes Unit investigators identified Williams as the suspect who appeared to have illegally uploaded child pornography images to a social networking website.
Cyber Crimes Unit officers executed a search warrant at Williams’s residence and confiscated computers and digital media. Cyber Crimes Unit officers also conducted a search of Williams’s classroom and school-issued computer. Cyber Crimes Unit investigators conducted an initial forensic examination on the flash drive and discovered several images of child pornography. Officers confiscated the school-issued computer and flash drive for further forensic review.
The defendant faces five third-degree felony counts of child pornography possession, each punishable by two to 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. Bond was set at $40,000 on each of the five counts. Williams remains in custody at Gonzales County Jail.
