HARRISON COUNTY, Ohio – A joint investigation between the Harrison County Sheriff's Office and the Ohio Internet Crimes against Children Task Force resulted in the arrest  37-year-old Jewett man William Woodward for possession of child pornography on Monday.
"We weren't able to download it all, but by working with the Cuyahoga County Task Force and the Ohio Internet Crimes against Children (task force), we were able to recover some of it, and it's pretty intense and excessive,” Harrison County Sheriff Joe Myers said.
Myers said investigators will work to determine whether or not Woodward was also disseminating that material, which could add to more charges
“So when you start disseminating some of those pictures across a text message even, it's against the law and we will track it down," Myers said.
After two cases this year where men have lured younger women to locations in Cadiz, Myers says his officers are pursuing this case to the fullest. Especially in cases that involve children.
“It's sad that they go out there and that's the only thing that they have to look at,” Myers said. “And this morning the gentleman said, 'I need help.' That's a step in the right direction, but it's too late.”
Myers said that they are consulting with the prosecutor’s office and that official charges against Woodward should be filed Tuesday. He also said that as the investigation continues, more charges could be filed.
