WANTED: Keith Scott Holland – Cowardly Pedophile with Child Porn on the run

Investigators are searching for a southwest Houston man after discovering more than 100 child pornography videos on a computer seized last week during a search of his home.

Members of the Houston Metro Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant on Thursday at the home of Keith Scott Holland, 49, officials said.

At first, Holland wouldn’t answer the door when the investigators with the multi-agency task force arrived at his home in the 9500 block of Ella Lee Lane, officers said.

“When they finally got in, he had tried to hide his computer,” said Eric Devlin, a Harris County assistant district attorney. “They found it under a chair.”

Holland is suspected of sharing child pornography videos stored in his computer for several months. An undercover investigator with the task force obtained four or five incriminating videos from him, Devlin said.

Holland confessed to trading the videos, but left in a Jaguar sedan while the investigators were searching his home, Devlin said.

“He bolted before the search warrant was done,” the prosecutor said. “We believe he is still in the Houston area.”

Investigators said Holland is a salesman specializing in leather goods at several stores in the Houston area.

Holland, who is white, is 6 feet tall, weighs 175 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes, officers said.

An arrest warrant has been issued, charging him with two counts of possession of child pornography. Bail set at a total of $100,000.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to Holland’s arrest. Anyone with information can call 713-222-TIPS or submit tips online at www.crime-stoppers.org. All callers will remain anonymous.

  • INDECENCY W/CHILD SEXUAL CONTACT
  • Offender’s age at conviction: 15
  • Victim Age: 4
  • Conviction date: 1/14/2008
  • SEXUAL ASSAULT CHILD
  • Offender’s age at conviction: 26

    Thomas Welvaert, 27, is accused of sexual assault and indecency with a child.

    Welvaert has two prior sex offender convictions, according to court records.

    He received five years probation in Falls County for aggravated sexual assault of a child in 1997. And just this past January, he received ten years deferred adjudication for sexual assault of a child in Brazos County.

    Officials with the Brazos County District Attorney’s office said Welvaert was given deferred adjudication as part of a plea agreement.

    And because this latest charge is in violation of his probation, the DA’s office said it can’t comment further since it’s a pending case.

    Derrick Bernard Hardin – Repeat Sex Offender –

    • Disposition Date – 12/20/2002
    • Victim – FEMALE AGE 8


    An Abilene man, already a registered sex offender, was arrested this morning on suspicion of sexually assaulting a girl younger than 14 years old.

    Derrick Bernard Hardin, Jr., 21, is being held at the Taylor County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond. He has previously spent time in a Texas Youth Commission facility for another sexual assault. Details about that case were not immediately available.

    The alleged assault occurred on Oct. 4. According to court documents, the girl reported to police that she tried to fight off her attacker, whom she later identified as Hardin in a photo lineup, but was overpowered.

    Hardin went to the girl’s home after she reported it to police and “acted in a threatening manner,” court documents show.

    Aggravated sexual assault of a child charge is a first-degree felony, punishable by up to life in prison.

    Texas Voices claims it’s easy to invade the privacy of victims

    From her two-story suburban home north of Austin, Jan Fewell, 50, searches for sex abuse victims in order to help their perpetrators.

    “Do you know a man named Stephen Fisher?” she asked into her cell phone. “Do you still keep in touch with him? You do? Was it consensual sex or was it rape?”

    She had just phoned a now 23-year-old mother of two. Combing through court records, Fewell learned that the woman, at age 13, had had sex with Fisher, a man five years her senior. Fewell wanted to know if the woman, who had refused to help prosecutors a decade ago, would be willing to help her group.

    In a later interview, the woman said she regularly visits the man in prison, is raising the two children he fathered with her and counting the days until his release. Yes, she would be receptive to helping the group.

    “That was so easy!” Fewell exclaimed after the call ended.
