Vegas Photographer on the Lam after Facing Child Porn Charges
Vegas police are looking for a photographer who failed to appear in court on child pornography charges. Judge Janiece Marshall issued a bench warrant for his arrest when he failed to appear in court early in September to face multiple charges, including seven counts of using a minor to produce pornography and three counts of lewdness with a child less than 14.William Clyde Thompson was arrested late last year after a police investigation into his activities at Storybook Studios, a local photography business. Officials claim that Thompson photographed a minor in various states of undress, and also asked the child to perform sexually explicit acts for the camera. He allegedly told his victim not to tell anyone about the pictures he had taken. This particular child has been modeling for Thompson for several months.
In investigating Thompson, officials seized several computers from the business, along with other electronic devices. After being booked on pornography charges, Thompson was allowed to post bail, but was restricted to house arrest and required to wear an ankle bracelet displaying his whereabouts. Police now believe he has removed his monitoring device so that he will not be located.
As a result of his arrest, parents in the Vegas area were cautioned to contact Las Vegas Metropolitan Police if they believed their child had also been a victim of Thompson’s. Those who fear this may have been the case can still contact the department’s sexual assault section at 702-828-3421. Those with information about Thompson’s whereabouts can call 702-385-5555.
