FDLE Arrests Pensacola man for child sex solicitation

Posted on September 8, 2022 by Staff reports

 FDLE agents arrested James Darwin Willman, 31, of Pensacola, today on two counts of using a computer to seduce, solicit or lure a child, seven counts of transmission of material harmful to a minor by electronic device or equipment, and one count of unlawful use of a two-way communications device. All charges are third-degree felonies.

The investigation began last month when agents, posing as a 14-year-old female, started communicating with Willman via an online dating website. Willman sent the agent’s 14-year-old persona several photographs of his exposed genitalia and requested nude photographs of the minor. He also agreed to travel and meet the agent’s 14-year-old persona, describing sexual acts he wanted to perform with her.

Willman was booked into the Escambia County Jail on $100,000 bond. He will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office, First Judicial Circuit.
