46-year-old Willie Reid of Olean was arrested today for downloading videos and images of child porn using a peer-to-peer file sharing program. Some of the images and videos are of pre-pubescent children, and some depict violence.
Hospital spokesman Dennis McCarthy says Reid has worked at the hospital since 2000, but hasn’t been to work since last week and is currently on suspension pending further review.
Reed is being held until a detention hearing on Wednesday. He is charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. The arrest was part of a nationwide sting operation.
