During a search of Widows’ home, deputies found electronic devices containing ten pornographic images of children and placed Widows under arrest. Authorities do not believe that any of the images are of children that he came in contact with at work, WESH reports.

Widows has worked as a school bus driver for the school district since November, according to WESH.

Widows faces ten counts of possession of child pornography and was released from Osceola County Jail after posting $50,000 bond.
