FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - A former Fairfax County police spokesman has pleaded guilty to multiple counts of possessing child pornography.

The Washington Post reports (https://wapo.st/1sNeiqT ) that 50-year-old William “Bud” Walker pleaded guilty Monday in a Fairfax County courtroom to 10 counts of possessing child pornography. He was handcuffed and taken to the county jail immediately after his plea hearing.

Police began their investigation of Walker last year after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that child pornography had been uploaded from a home in Fairfax County.

Walker joined the force in 1999 and held several jobs in that time, including public information officer. He was also a school resource officer in South County High School from 2006 through 2009.

He will be sentenced in August.
