Lane Rees arrested on child porn charges

Officials in Florida on Monday said that an elected Florida Republican Party committeeman had been arrested on multiple charges of possessing and transmitting child pornography.

Walton County Sheriff Mike Adkinson confirmed to The Northwest Florida Daily Newsthat Lane Rees, a former Walton County Commissioner, was taken into custody around 5 p.m. on Monday after a month-long investigation.

Deputies recovered “multiple images” of child pornography after serving a search warrant on his home in Santa Rosa Beach.

Rees was elected to the Walton County Commission in 2000, where he served until being defeated by 23-year-old Republican Scott Brannon four years later. He has served as Walton County’s Republican state committeeman since being elected by party members in 2008.

In 2001, Walton County named Rees “Man of the Year.” According to his bio, Rees is President of the consulting group Human Resource Solutions, Inc. and serves on the board of the United Methodist Church’s Foundation for Evangelism.

Rees faces up to 10 years in prison and $10,000 in fines if convicted on all charges.

One response to “Florida Republican committeeman arrested for child porn”

  1. Leah Turner Ng says :

    He should stay in jail until every child is found in his private collection.
    After the child is found he should face charges from each child / state charges per child violated.
    Bay County and the FBI currently have information on a husband and wife team from Ga who used fl children in Fl hotels for their photo opportunities along with forcing child on child and Bay County and the department of Child services are either paid off or just clearly do not want to admit they were wrong and the sad part is the childten have been forced to by the judge to go with the accussed which has resulted in the 8 year old boy being drugged and raped and the accusser threaten to kill the boys Mother who he lives with full time if when the accused returned the child to Fl . I like to know if the children I m speaking of if their photos could be scanned to see if they are possable photos of them . From what I understand the accused party I mentioned has to much money to fight the DCF so they closed their cases with ” signs of sexual absuse ” no depency action taken due to lack if 2 children have years of abuse did not tell the same story and the older child was threatened that they would kill her Mother and Brother if she told anyone about what the accused did to her molest her and enticed her and her brother to sexualy touch each other so he could video tape the children while following the accused direction what the accused made the children live likev. We have contacted the states attorney and FBI hwy 77 , Beach Police every one that says they are of course on the violated numerous times side thats great if you are not giving the if that means that Bay County is not trained as well as Walton County or if they all likevtheir pockets full of cash by making money at the exspense of the children.
    These guys are freaks
