Dr. Robert Davis Williams, an emergency room doctor, was arrested at his home recently by Jacksonville, Florida Sheriff’s office deputies. Williams, who earned his medical degree at the University of Florida, and completed his residency at Shands, Jacksonville, has been charged with possession of child pornography.
Reportedly, a woman living with Williams came across a video portraying child pornography and notified police. She told police investigators that she then looked further and found thousands of DVDs which could be classified as child pornography. Police have seized Williams’ computer and computer storage media along with several hundred VHS tapes and DVDs.
Williams is licensed to practice medicine in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama, and was working as a travelling emergency physician with Team Health until he was fired on the same day that he was arrested. If he is convicted he could face up to five years in prison.
