Child Pornography Arrest

Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen announces the arrest of a Bay County man Friday, November 30, 2007, for charges relating to the dissemination of child pornography.

Robert Lee Nikkel, DOB 2-15-48, of 11005 Old Bicycle Road, was arrested Friday night at his home. Unbeknownst to Nikkel, he had been conducting internet chats with an undercover Naval Criminal Investigative Services Agent through the months of June, July, and September. During the course of the chats, Nikkel told the agent she should be allowing her children to be nude in her residence. He also engaged in talk about incest, which Nikkel said he encouraged.

During the course of the communications, Nikkel sent numerous files of child pornography to the agent. Nikkel also attempted to communicate with the agent’s “children,” during the chats.

Nikkel was charged with nine counts of Possession of the Sexual Performance of a Child, and nine counts of Promoting the Sexual Performance of a Child. He is being held at the Bay County Jail on $100,000 bond. His computer had been forwarded to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for a forensic analysis, and he could face more charges upon the completion of that portion of the investigation.
