The “dirty bag” is off the streets, the Sheriff said.

Santa Rosa Sheriff Bob Johnson announced the arrest of Richard Andrew Jackson, a convicted sexual predator, on 20 counts of child pornography.

“Some of the victims were as young as two and three years old,” the Sheriff stressed.

The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jackson on Timberline Road in Milton at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

The Sheriff said they found 105 images on a cell phone that belonged to Jackson.

The Sheriff told Channel 3 News the phone was not registered, as required by the state of convicted sexual predators.

The Sheriff said remaining images are being reviewed by experts and more charges could be filed.

Jackson has a criminal history.

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Richard Jackson was convicted in 2012 for failing to register as a sexual predator and for possession of photos/pictures showing sexual performance.

It also stated he was arrested in the 1990’s on charges involving a child.

This investigation is ongoing.
