19-year-old Clinton Man Arrested on Child Pornography Charge
William Wood was arrested at his home following an investigation of suspicious online activity. He was booked into the Clinton city jail awaiting his initial appearance.
If convicted, Wood faces up to 40 years in prison and $500,000 in fines. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
This case was investigated by Jay Houston with the Mississippi Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force with assistance from the Clinton Police Department. It will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn.
