FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested 58-year-old Warren Hamilton for 20 counts of sexual performance by a child.

FDLE Agents served a search warrant at Hamilton's home, located at 3935 McGregor Blvd., and found numerous digital images of child pornography. He worked in the IT section of the 20th Judicial Circuit State Attorney's Office. Hamilton was booked into the Lee County Jail.

According to the State Attorney's Office, they have requested that another State Attorney be assigned to prosecute the charges against Hamilton, to avoid any conflict of interest. Hamilton had been an employee of the local office since 1988.

Hamilton has been suspended without pay, again according to the State Attorney's Office. His position in Information Technology does not impact any past, pending or future prosecutions.

The investigation continues.
