Child Porn Allegations Against Sheriff's Lieutenant

Former Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Lieutenant Michael Kennedy is under investigation. He's accused of possessing child pornography on his personal computer. The Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit confiscated the material Tuesday. The 31-year-old jail supervisor resigned immediately.

The state's investigation came as a surprise to Sheriff Thomas Kerss, who broke the news to Kennedy's fellow law enforcement officers.  Kerss said, "This type of offense -- and I'm not trying to precast guilt on anyone -- but this type of offense goes against the very grain of what we stand for, and it's obvious to them, as well as to the citizens of the county, and the message I try to convey to them was none of us are above the law."  

Kennedy worked for Nacogdoches County for eight years. Last year, he worked in Iraq as a law enforcement trainer. The evidence will be presented to a Nacogdoches County Grand Jury.
