    This man wanted assistance and I am so pleased that the clerk was on the ball and offered up the appropriate assistance!! At first, I thought, "Oh no, not another innocent bathtub toddler shot". Trust me, it's not.

    Ga. cell phone worker finds child porn
    Man had come into Watkinsville store for phone assistance



    "An Oconee County man was jailed on child pornography charges after a clerk at a cell phone store noticed a photo of a naked child stored on his phone, sheriff's deputies testified at a preliminary hearing Friday.

    Thomas Heath King, 43, needed help paying his phone bill and handed his cell phone to a clerk, sheriff's investigator Jason Higgins testified in Oconee County Magistrate Court.

    "That's when (the clerk) saw a picture of a naked child," Higgins said...."

    and

    "....The cell phone clerk contacted the sheriff's office July 16 after King left the store, and deputies obtained a search warrant to confiscate King's phone, Higgins testified.

    When authorities confirmed that the phone contained images of nude children in sexual poses, deputies searched King's house and confiscated two computer hard drives, computer discs and other electronic hardware, Higgins said.

    Deputies identified the two children on King's phone as Oconee County residents - an 8-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy...."

    They identified the children. Poor little guys. But they can immediately be provided services. That really pleases me.

    How positively wonderful that they were able to identify the children, so they can receive help right away. We don't see that too often and it made me so happy. Poor babies, having to deal with all of this and be interviewed and everything. I am so, so thankful they have been identified.

    Awwww, the littles. Poor babies. Echoing B, and Izzy. There's a better chance these little ones will get the help they need. I pray they will.

    You go, Mr. Cell Phone man. :clap:I thank you.

    What is up with these perverts? What's up with the cell phone pictures?

    Man, I am so glad Thomas Heath King was clueless on how to pay his dang bill. Busted.

    Most clerks that I've encountered at cell phone stores are quite young. I think there's a reason for that. The younger people are about the only ones who understand all the ins and outs of cell phones. My guess is that this clerk was a young guy. What a cool head. I'm so pleased he kept it together and was as smooth as could be.

    Did everybody notice that the clerk actually recognized one of the children? Do you think there's a possibility that the little one was standing right next to the awful dad? It's either that or a very small town. Wait, I checked. It is small, only 2000 people. Either way, that means that the clerk recognized the child. That must have been a horrid shock.

    He's a hero, that's for sure. Isn't it interesting how many hats that guardian angels wear? You just never know when one will pop up.

    Debbie--From what survivors are telling us now, the abuse was going on then and long before. That's the tragedy. You have to be careful everywhere. The young man who raped my children was helping out in their special ed classroom at school.

    So often these guys look like anyone on the street. This guy looks like a throwback to Height Ashbury, now college professors. I bet he comes across as harmless, and that is even scarier.

    He looks like about one fourth of the men walking the streets in Ashland--college professors, actors at OSF, waiters, teachers, contractors, regular guys.

    I'm telling you, guys, they just don't wear their "perv" shirts as we've so often requested.

    Interesting comments after that article. Someone claiming they saw that guys picture in the paper before for something.

    Also, when they interviewed the one child the child said he didn't touch her. The second interview the child said he did. Well, either way he obviously had this poor baby pose. Plus all the child pornography in his home.

    He's known to the family. Does some chores for them and guess what? Lets the kids swim at his house. Oh, O.K. that's just great. He's a swell guy. Creeper.
