Hi All - I am not too involved in the whole conspiracy malarkey as much as I used to be, but I heard on the grapevine that there was a little friction on the ATS site between the owners and the members, so last week I went and took a sneak peek at ATS  - After reading about ad blockers and money problems I got hooked so have been going back a few times to follow the threads. Today I visited and the top post caught my attention which I thought deserved to be talked about here, especially as there are people on this site that have the capabilities of finding out more than the average Joe.

Basically this guy Donald Lawson used to work for NASA but last year he was arrested for child pornography and sentenced to jail and no one has heard from him since. There is speculation that he might be a top ranking NASA senior but others have classed him as a simple IT contractor. (what a stark difference)

I wanted to get your balanced thoughts on this instead of jumping to the whole 'disclosure' rhetoric that perpetuates from others.

I don't normally log in to post but this caught me eye. Apologies If this has been posted before please delete this post if in appropriate.

Seems pretty cut and dry... he confessed and didn't seek bail

Former NASA worker remains in jail on child porn charges

Quote
70-year-old former NASA employee facing child pornography charges will remain in the Seminole County Jail after he did not ask for bail at a hearing in federal court on Tuesday.

Donald Lawson is accused of downloading hundreds of photos of child porn as well as producing his own with a hidden camera in his house and a hotel room, according to court records.

The Brevard County man was fired last month from his job at Kennedy Space Center, as well as from a federal information technology contractor, Science Applications International Corp, after allegations of "multiple security violations," court records state.

But when investigators searched Lawson's devices for NASA-related information, they found videos and photos of naked boys.

Federal agents think one image may have involved a child Lawson worked with "as a volunteer for a well-known youth outreach program," according to court records.

Lawson was arrested June 18 on a charge of possessing material of child pornography.

He allegedly confessed to agents and provided them with the password to his devices after they interviewed him at a mental health care provider, the complaint states.

A NASA spokesperson did not return a phone call seeking more information about Lawson's termination.

Donald Lawson, 70, was arrested under federal child pornography charges Thursday.



Lawson reportedly confessed to setting up hidden cameras in the bathroom of his Titusville house.


Lawson later told authorities he set up a hidden camera in the bathroom of his house and a hotel room to capture naked picture of young boys in his care.

One of the boys interacted with Lawson through a "well-known youth outreach program," Di Vita wrote without specifying.

Lawson worked with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America for the last 23 years, according to his LinkedIn page.

Lawson is not an active member with the organization, spokesman Michael Andriano told the station. The group performs "extensive and stringent" background checks, he said.


..

Lawson also admitted to downloading 600 to 800 child porn images and videos, investigators said. He later gave them passwords to the devices, allowing them to view the images themselves.

Authorities are still working to identify all of the victims pictured.

Lawson was booked into Seminole County Jail without bail.

NASA spokesman Michael Curie told the Daily News "NASA cannot comment on any active investigations."
