Somerset man hit with child porn charges

(Continued)

Somerset —

Commonwealth’s Attorney Eddy Montgomery and his staff assisted in the investigation, according to Smith.

Whitson was transported to the Laurel County Detention Center. He will be arraigned in U.S. District Court. 

Details of Whitson’s case were not publicly available through the U.S. Eastern District Court’s electronic system as of Wednesday afternoon. 

Whitson had been employed through the City of Somerset. 

Smith said Whitson was suspended from his duties after the search warrant was executed, and he said Whitson received a letter of termination shortly thereafter. 

A call placed to Somerset Mayor Eddie Girdler seeking confirmation of Whitson’s termination was not returned by press time Wednesday.
