OAKLAND COUNTY, MI – Timothy James Holbert, 31-years-old, Springfield Township, Michigan, has been arrested after authorities discovered over 8,000 child porn images in his possession.Timothy James Holbert

On Tuesday, July 14th, 2015, deputies from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department, as well as agents from the FBI, executed a federal arrest warrant on Holbert and his residence.




Holbert was arraigned in U.S. District Court in Detroit on one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Holbert remains lodged in the Wayne County Jail. He is being held without bond until the next hearing which is scheduled for Friday, July 17th, 2015, at 1p.m.

Sheriff Michael Bouchard is very disturbed by the images. Indications are that very young children were being sexually abused and exploited. This is the kind of person you want to take off the streets.

An investigation was launched against Timothy Holbert last August when two juveniles observed him through a window viewing child porn on his computer.  His home is located on Dixie Highway.

Authorities also found search terms consistent with child pornography on Holbert’s computer, computer “cleaning” software and evidence of encryption software.

If convicted of the charges, Holbert faces a minimum of five years in a federal prison.
