Robert L. Webster – Arrested for Distribution of Child Pornography

At least 29 such files were found on the hard drives, and one of the files was part of a known child sexual exploitation series, according to the papers.


A 35-year-old man was arrested last week for distributing child pornography on computers at his Felton home, police said.

Robert L. Webster of Fox Chase Drive was arrested early Thursday as the result of an online undercover investigation by the State Police Child Predator Task Force.

During a search, police seized six desktop computers, six laptops, 11 hard drives and other digital material, said police Sgt. Walter Newton.

Webster was charged with 29 counts of using a computer to unlawfully depict a child engaging in a prohibited sexual Act, Newton said.

Webster was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 7 in Dover and is being held on $870,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday morning.

According to court records, police found Webster in his bedroom in the home’s basement, where a workstation with a desktop computer was found. Webster admitted he was the only resident to use the computer, the papers say.

Webster also admitted to using LimeWire, a file-sharing program, to download the pornographic images, some of children as young as 3 or 4 years old, the papers say.

At least 29 such files were found on the hard drives, and one of the files was part of a known child sexual exploitation series, according to the papers.

James Edward Whitfield – Repeat Sex Offender – Pedophile

April 13, 2003
public indecency for exposing himself to a minor

Sept. 25, 2003
child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes



A convicted St. Marys child molester has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for possession of child pornography.

James Edward Whitfield, 25, was also sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Judge Anthony Aliamo to a lifetime period of supervised release after he serves his 137-month sentence.

He faced a minimum sentence of 10 years because he was previously convicted of child molestation, according to a release from U.S. Attorney Edmund Booth Jr.

Whitfield had pleaded guilty in April to a single count of possession of child pornography as part of a plea agreement in which the government dismissed charges of receipt of child pornography and transportation of child pornography.

Evidence showed Whitfield possessed numerous pictures and 37 videos depicting child pornography. He told investigators in a sworn affidavit he got the pornography over the Internet while using a peer-to-peer program called Limewire.

He became the subject of an investigation after he took his computer to be repaired and a technician discovered a document file on the machine’s hard drive containing the pornography.

Prior to his conviction, Whitfield told investigators he was convicted of misdemeanor public indecency for exposing himself to a minor on April 13, 2003. He was also charged with child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes on Sept. 25, 2003. Both cases occurred in Houston County, according to court documents.

Whitfield had been held without bail because he was found living in the 300 block of West Wilbur Street in Kingsland with his pregnant, 17-year-old girlfriend, which was a violation of his release as a sex offender.
