High School Wrestling Coach Posts Bail After Being Charged With Child Porn Possession
A Montgomery County high school wrestling coach has posted bail after being arrested and charged on child pornography charges following a two year investigation, according to court records.
In October 2017, the Department of Homeland Security reportedly flagged a drug task force to go to the apartment of 28 year old Dake Williams on Elington Boulevard in Gaithersburg. Apparently, a package containing the drug MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, commonly known as ecstasy or molly) had been detected at the airport addressed to him.
When they arrived, the officers observed vials, a scale and Ziploc bags containing white powder in plain view.
Investigators later seized multiple hard drives, a laptop and a phone, all allegedly belonging to Williams. On them, investigators said they found over 1,000 files of child porn, showing children younger than 10 years old in sexual acts, one involving an animal. Mr. Williams was charged with nearly a dozen counts of child pornography possession, along with several drug related charges. Bail was set at $150,000.00 which court records indicate was posted following a grand jury imdictment earlier this week.
The case against Williams is scheduled for a three day jury trial, starting on February 11.
