Montgomery County task force wages war against child pornography

Posted: Updated:
CONROE, Texas (FOX 26) -

Don't let the small town appeal and holiday cheer fool you in Montgomery County because there's something darker lurking.

Montgomery County prosecutors say on any given month there are 200 to 500 people downloading child pornography in the community.

"That's frightening. That's a number we need to do something about," says Assistant District Attorney Warren Diepraam.

Andrew Lyon Robinson is the latest high-profile Montgomery County resident to be arrested for possession of child porn. Prosecutors say the former Saudi Aramco pilot entered a guilty plea on Tuesday for having the pornographic images on his home computer and iPad. He was arrested in October.

"Multitudes of videos and pictures. The children were generally between age of 6 and 11 years old. Females that were prepubescent," says Diepraam.

Robinson isn't alone. A former youth counselor, along with a former Harris County deputy and a former city manager, all arrested in Montgomery County in the last two months for allegedly possessing child pornography.

That's why investigators from the District Attorney's Office, along with Montgomery County precincts 3 and 4 constables' offices have started a task force. They hunt down those who hunt for child porn on the internet.

"We think by taking them out at this point and finding them early on we can prevent more victims," says Diepraam.

Those who live in Montgomery County say they have no problem with law enforcement and prosecutors aggressively and proactively going after those who download porn - individuals like Andrew Robinson whose admittance of guilt gets him a decade behind bars.

Renal Perez has younger siblings. He says, "Those people who do that definitely need to be violated or prosecuted it's righteous and against a child."
