    CA - Walter Williams for sex abuse, child porn, Palm Springs, 2013


    Quoted from from article:
    Man hunted by FBI for alleged child sex abuse arrested in Mexico

    Mexican authorities have arrested a former college professor who was on the FBI's 10 most wanted list over allegations of child sex abuse. Walter Lee Williams was detained late Tuesday, Mexican state news agency Notimex reported.

    The FBI placed the former university professor wanted for alleged sexual exploitation of children on the list Monday, according to Notimex.

    Williams researched in the field of gender development at a university in California, which gave him easy access to his victims, mainly teenage boys in developing countries, the FBI said.

    Agents believe he had resided in Indonesia, Polynesia and Thailand, but also may have traveled to Mexico and Peru.

    An FBI agent reported finding child pornography on a computer and in a video camera belonging to Williams.

    He was the 500th suspect added to the "FBI 10 most wanted fugitives" list, and the bureau offered $100,000 for information leading to his arrest.

    I can't believe how quickly they caught this guy after listing him in the top ten for only one day.

    Here is a different photo of him, but the article is in Spanish


    I always hope catching one guy like this leads to others... I don't know in this case though.

    Williams traveled extensively, and many of his victims are said to be citizens of third-world countries. USC previously listed Williams as an expert on Belize, Cambodia, China, Laos, Malaysia and Mexico. He held appointments in the anthropology, gender studies and history departments. USC verified that Williams left the university in 2011.

    Following his admission, the court recommended a prison sentence of no more than five years for Williams and ordered him to pay $25,000 to be divided among his seven identified victims...

    The professor’s sentencing is set on December 15.
