Deputy Arrested in Child Porn Sting

- An 11 year veteran of Walton County Sheriff’s Office is now behind arrested during a massive online-child porn bust. Uriah McCullers's was one 18 people nabbed during the sting, according to investigators.

"We have a great department, but when you have something like that happen, you have to deal with it," said Walton County Jail Commander Wade Harris.

He said McCuller's position as a law enforcement officer is no excuse for the crimes he's accused of committing.

"We're not going to say just because he's in law enforcement that it makes it ok," said Harris, "we're going to deal with those things too."

The operation, known as Secret Guardian, began in July. More than thirty agencies across the state took part in the initiative, which culminated with the arrests of 18 people who have all been charged with either possessing, producing or distributing child porn.
