Suspect Arrested in Ongoing, Multi-Agency Child Pornography Investigation
A 38-year-old Wilson County man has been arrested and is being held at the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center following an ongoing, multi-agency investigation into child pornography.
Cecil Clint Woodard was arrested Saturday as a result of information regarding a suspect being involved in possession of child pornography. The intelligence was obtained during a continuing investigation by the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, the FBI and Metro Nashville Police Department’s Child Exploitation Task Force.
Law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at 431 Green Harbor Court in Old Hickory, where the suspect was located. Woodard is now jailed under $300,000 bond for three counts of Especially Aggravated Sexual Exploitation involving a minor less than five years of age.
“This is a prime example of the importance of good communication among surrounding agencies working cooperatively together,” Sheriff Robert Bryan said. “The swift action of all agents and detectives involved not only secured vital evidence, but likely prevented other future victims from being exploited. These cases are among law enforcement’s most important because it is essential we do everything within our power to ensure to protect our children’s innocence and welfare.”
Woodard’s court date is currently scheduled for 9 a.m. Aug. 17 in Wilson County General Sessions Court.
