BREAKING: Limestone man accused of viewing child porn

— A Limestone County man accused of downloading and viewing child pornography has been charged with possession of obscene material, an official said.

William Gerald Williams, 67, of 9162 Segers Road, Lot 13, Madison, was arrested Thursday afternoon by Limestone County Sheriff’s investigators acting on information supplied by another department, Chief Investigator Capt. Stanley McNatt said.

Williams was released from the Limestone County Jail after posting bail of $5,000.

Madison County Sheriff’s Investigator Cathy Shaw, who is assigned to Internet crimes against children, notified the sheriff’s office of a Limestone resident downloading computer files involving child pornography, McNatt said.

After obtaining a warrant, Madison and Limestone investigators searched Williams’ residence about 11 a.m. and seized multiple computers and VHS tapes as evidence, he said.

During questioning, Williams admitted downloading child porn and viewing it, McNatt said.

Shaw and Limestone investigators Leslie Ramsey and Lt. Jay Stinnett will continue the investigation.
