AG busts Hewitt man for child porn

Local

A 53-year-old Hewitt man has been arrested by Texas Attorney General investigators on five counts of felony possession of child pornography.

George Henry Gemmell was tracked down by members of the AG’s Child Exploitation Unit through his IP address that they say was connected to a device that shared the illegal images.

A search warrant was conducted at Gemmell’s home resulting in numerous images of child pornography being stored on his desktop computer.

Gemmel, who works as a security guard, admitted that he downloaded and viewed child porn.

In addition, several digital storage devices were seized from his home for examination  by the Digital Forensics Unit of the attorney general’s office.

A statement issued by the AG’s office said they were working to protect children by using the latest technology to track down what they called ” the most profoundly evil predators” on line.
