Woodstock pastor charged with child porn possession

WOODSTOCK, Ill. (WLS) -- Police arrested a pastor at his Woodstock home Friday on child porn charges.

Rev. Timothy Williams, 50, was arrested at his home in the 500-block of Brookdale Road and charged with six counts of possession of child pornography, according to the McHenry County Sheriff's Office.

Police said the investigation into Williams started with a tip eight months ago. A search of his home in July turned up images of child porn on his computer, officials said.

His name was removed from the website of Heritage Baptist Church in Greenwood, Ill., where he was a pastor, the day after the search of his home.
