Tuscaloosa Man Arrested on Multiple Child Pornography Charges
A Tuscaloosa man was arrested on two charges related to child pornography Thursday, and more charges are expected soon, according to the West Alabama Human Trafficking Task Force.
Michale Wilson, 33, was arrested Thursday after investigators searched his home earlier that morning.
The WAHTTF worked in cooperation with multiple outside agencies for this arrest, including the Tuscaloosa Police Department, University of Alabama Police Department, the State of Alabama Internet Crimes Against Children Division and TPD'S Cyber Crimes division.
“Collaboration between these agencies is essential in cases like this,” said task force commander Capt. Phil Simpson. “Sharing resources helps us to quickly build strong cases against those who support the exploitation and victimization of children.”
Wilson was charged with two counts of disseminating obscene material depicting persons under the age of 17. He was transported to the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where he is being held on a $60,000 bond.
Simpson said that this is an ongoing investigation, and he expects additional charges.
