Documents reveal messages Naples man accused of child porn sent on Twitter

Kevin John Hawkesworth, 51, faces 53 counts of electronic transmission of child pornography by an electric device and 10 counts of promotion of child pornography.

A 35 page arrest warrant details messages and pictures Hawkesworth exchanged with others over Twitter.

The former CEO of Shaw Development’s arrest warrant shows detailed conversations he had on Twitter. Hawkesworth shared dozens of pictures of naked children, some still wore diapers.

Twitter had shut down two of Hawesworth’s accounts prior to being arrested, the report says. These new messages are from a third account.

According to the report, time codes show Hawkesworth was soliciting images during Hurricane Irma.

One person he was messaging with asked him to download the messaging app “Kik” to receive larger files, the warrant said.

“I only have the phone my company gave me. I don’t know if I can stomach having this stuff discovered by my work,” Hawkesworth responded.

Hawkesworths neighbor, Sonia Aldeerman, lives a few houses away from his. She said she saw when deputies raided his house last November.

“They (deputies) were going from house to house with kids asking if your kids have been over to that house and everybody said no,” Aldeerman said.

Aldeerman said she has had a few encounters with the Hawkesworth family and never suspected this.

“We’re just shocked because we never thought that he would, I mean he is a nice guy,” Aldeerman said. “The whole family is very nice, very. I don’t know, just something you would never thought he would do.”

Hawkesworth bonded out of jail Sunday, and is set to appear in court Jan. 16, 2018
