Arrest Made for Possession of Child Pornography

August 15, 2016
Levi Jermaine Griffin (7-12-1977) was arrested by the Levy
County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division on August 12, 2016. Investigators
were contacted by Griffin’s Federal Probation Officer who had received
information that Griffin was in possession of images of children on his
computer, which the complainant believed were pornographic.
Investigators met with the complainant and recovered a
tablet style computer. During the interview with the complainant, a description
of the images seen on the computer was given. LCSO investigators immediately began
the process to obtain a search warrant for the device.
Based upon the complainant’s description of these images,
investigators located and interviewed Griffin. Griffin initially refused to
answer questions and was released. However, he was given an order to have no
contact with the material witness in their investigation. Investigators learned
that within the same hour Griffin contacted the complainant and attempted to convince
them to destroy the evidence. Griffin was located and arrested for tampering
with a witness.
LCSO Investigators obtained a warrant for the tablet and located
164 images of children which do classify as pornographic. Griffin was also
charged with possession of child pornography.
Griffin is being held at the Levy County Detention Facility on
a $350,000 bond and is charged with Tampering with a Witness and Possession of
Child Pornography.
