Former State Attorney’s Office Employee Enters Guilty Plea to Child Porn

Warren Hamilton, who used to work at the State Attorney’s office in Fort Myers, entered a guilty plea to child pornography charges yesterday in Federal court. It did not go well. Hamilton apparently refused to admit to the allegations. According to reports, he finally entered a plea, but never admitted to knowingly downloading porn. He told the court that some of the images ended up on his computer, and he was trying to investigate, and that in doing so he “ended up downloading some images and files.”

It may come across to the court that he isn’t sincere, or isn’t taking responsibility for his actions… and that’s not a good thing. According to NBC2, he’s facing from 5 to 30 years for the charges he pled to. He is out on bond awaiting sentencing when he comes back before the court. I doubt that his claims about accidentally downloading some child pornography will impress the judge, especially considering that he worked in the IT department for the State Attorney’s office for a long time.
