FDLE arrests Milton man for child pornography

MILTON, Fla. – Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested William Dalton Milam, 62, of Milton, on two counts of promoting sexual performance of a child and 25 counts of possession of child pornography. Milam worked as a pastor at a church in Milton.
The investigation began with a cybertip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) regarding an Internet user uploading child pornography. FDLE agents traced the IP address used in the uploads to Milam’s residence.
Agents served a search warrant this morning at Milam’s residence and found multiple devices belonging to Milam that contained child pornography. The images depicted children as young as three years old engaged in sex acts.
The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office, Milton Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations assisted on this case.
Milam was arrested today and booked into the Santa Rosa County Jail on a no-bond status pending first appearance. The Office of the State Attorney, 1st Judicial Circuit, will prosecute this case.
