YUKON, Okla. – Authorities say they arrested a 49-year-old Yukon man after he allegedly shared images of child pornography with an undercover deputy.
Last week, investigators in Canadian County determined that child pornography was being shared from a computer inside a Yukon home.
On Thursday, members of the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office went to the home with a search warrant and found 49-year-old Tracy Williams sleeping on his mother’s couch.
Williams told investigators that he has been unemployed for a while and has been living with his mother.
Authorities seized several electronic devices from the home and say Williams also provided a full confession.
In addition to photographs, investigators also collected thousands of pornographic videos of children ranging from 4-years-old to 15-years-old being raped by male and female adults.
“It’s extremely disturbing to know monsters like Williams exist, and they get off on using videos of children being raped to facilitate their sick and twisted sexual fantasies,” said Undersheriff Chris West, with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office.
Williams was charged with one count of distribution of child pornography and one count of violating the Computer Crimes Act.
“I believe it’s vitally important for the public to understand that anyone involved in the collection and distribution of child pornography is actively involved, and personally responsible for the exploitation of innocent children,” West added.
