Wilson was arrested when he reported for duty, and his house was searched. His arrest followed an investigation by the MSP Computer Crimes Unit. The state police was tipped off by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Wilson was placed on unpaid suspension while the case is going on. He is being lodged in the Ottawa County Jail.

In a statement, state police officials said the department has “a long-standing tradition of demanding the highest possible standards of professional conduct form its enforcement and civilian members.

“”Regardless of whether a criminal charge results in a conviction, employees can still be subject to administrative penalties resulting from violations of department policy,” reads a portion of the statement. “All policy violations are investigated thoroughly and acted upon in a manner consistent with current labor-relations law and bargaining unit agreements.”

Wilson has been a trooper with MSP since 2012.
