Google gets man arrested after discovering child porn in his email

A Houston man named John Henry Skillern was arrested after Google alerted authorities about illegal photos of children in his Gmail account. The 41-year-old, who works at a Denny’s restaurant in Pasadena, is a registered sex offender, convicted of sexually assaulting a child in 1994. The search giant informed the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children after detecting three allegedly pornographic images of children in Skillern’s email. The Center then alerted the police, which in turn used the information to get a warrant. According to the police, the raid yielded more than what Google knew was there.

A registered sex offender who secretly recorded children while working as a cook at a Houston Denny’s is under arrest — thanks to Google. The Internet giant alerted authorities when it detected images of a girl in 41-year-old John Henry Skillern’s email,KHOU reported. Skillern, who served 19 years in prison for sexually assaulting a child, was arrested late last month by the Houston Metro Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Cops found the incriminating evidence after searching his cellphone and tablet. “He was trying to get around getting caught, he was trying to keep it inside his email,”Detective David Nettles told KHOU. “I can’t see that information, I can’t see that photo, but Google can.” Cops found video on Skillern’s cellphone of children at Denny’s with their parents, according to the station. Google had tipped off the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children after detecting the image.
