Police: Man propositioned undercover officer online
CLEARWATER - A 45-year-old Boynton Beach man was arrested Sunday after he propositioned an undercover detective posing as a child on the Internet, police say. Stephen N. Williamson sent obscene images to a detective acting as a child and used a Web camera to commit real-time lewd acts, police said. The crimes occurred near the end of 2004, according to arrest reports. Police spokesman Wayne Shelor said Williamson was arrested when he came to Clearwater last weekend to meet the child. Williamson was charged with three counts of lewd/lascivious exhibition and a count each of transmission of material harmful to a minor and solicitation of a minor via computer. He posted $40,000 in bail and was released from the Pinellas County Jail early Monday morning.
