AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that earlier this week the Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) of his office arrested 26-year-old Joshua Carl Wulff, of Leander, on four counts of Possession of Child Pornography, a third-degree felony. Wulff could face up to 10 years in prison per charge if convicted.
Following a referral from Pennsylvania law enforcement, CEU investigators executed a search warrant at Wulff’s residence, where child pornography was found on his laptop. Investigators confiscated additional digital storage devices that will be examined by the attorney general’s Digital Forensics Unit. During an interview, Wulff confessed to using online social networks to solicit children. He was booked into Williamson County Jail without incident.
The Texas Attorney General’s Office works to protect children by using the latest technology to track down some of the most profoundly evil predators online. The CEU proactively seeks out and arrests predators who commit crimes against children using technology and online sources. Attorney General Paxton urges all parents and teachers to become aware of the risks our children face on the internet and take steps to help ensure their children’s safety.
