In September 2022, the Henry County Sheriff’s Office ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children) Investigative Unit began an undercover chat operation.
Police say Robert Steven Walker, 66, approached one of the Henry County Sheriff’s Office Investigators in a chatroom and over a period of chats “conducted himself in a very graphic sexual manner.”
Investigators discovered Walker was also a retired law enforcement officer living in Clifton Heights, Pennsylvania.
In March, Henry County ICAC investigators traveled to Clifton Heights and, with the assistance of the U.S. Homeland Security and the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office, Walker was charged with 10 counts of using a computer to solicit a child. On Oct. 19, he plead guilty to all 10 counts in Henry County Circuit Court and was sentenced to 17 years in prison.
