Child Predator Suspect Arrested for Second Time (Press Release)

by Public Information Officer, Tuesday, August 28, 2018, 17:19 (324 days ago)

ABILENE, TX – Benjamin Roberts (25 yoa) has been arrested days after bonding out of jail on charges of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child, Second Degree Felony Indecency with a Child by Sexual Contact and Third Degree Felony Possession of Child Pornography.

The collaborative effort between Taylor County, the Abilene Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigations aided in the re-arrest of Roberts. The FBI picked up the Third Degree Felony Possession of Child Pornography charge and arrested Roberts earlier today. He is back in the Taylor County Jail awaiting a Federal Court date.

Roberts was originally arrested in March, after Abilene Police Department’s Cyber Crimes Unit captured him downloading child pornography. He was arrested at a home located at 465 Cockrell after agents executed a search warrant at the home. Several electronic devices were confiscated along with other evidence.

He worked at several local organizations where he possibly came into contact with children. Each of those organizations worked with the Abilene Police Department to help identify any victims.
