Loudoun Bus Driver Charged with Child Pornography Possession

A Loudoun County Public Schools bus driver has been suspended following his arrest on federal charges of possessing child pornography.

Alan Marshall Williams, 54, of Charles Town, WV, was arrested Friday after federal investigators executed a search warrant at his Jefferson Avenue home. He is being held at the Eastern Regional Jail on $100,000 bond.

The investigation began April 7 when a special agent with the Department of Homeland Security made contact with Williams online. During their communications, Williams allegedly admitted to sexually abusing a minor in the past.

On April 12, federal agents and West Virginia State Police troopers executed a federal search warrant at Williams’ home. The search resulted in the seizure of 176 CDs/DVDs, with three images found to be sexually explicit photos of girls between the ages of 8 and 15.

Williams shared the home with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office’s chief deputy, Ronald Fletcher, who is not a suspect in the case.

Sheriff Dougherty says this is now a federal investigation.
Loudoun County Public Schools spokesman Wayde Byard said Williams had been suspended without pay from his position as a school bus driver.

    Did he admit the past sexual abuse to the Sheriff, or, did LCPS know about it before they hired him?

    The article sounded like he admitted the abuse during the online conversations he had. I can absolutely assure you that LCPS didn’t know anything about it. That’s a rather ridiculous thought. Criminal background checks are done and it doesnt sound like he has a record. Glad he was caught and removed. LCPS certainly has their faults but knowingly hired someone with a child pornography record is ludicrous
