Christopher Walker was convicted Tuesday by a Forrest County Jury on two counts of touching a child for lustful purposes, and one count of exploitation of a child.

Walker was indicted on Dec. 1 and arrested a week later.

Assistant District Attorneys Becky Denham and James Lane prosecuted the case on behalf of the State of Mississippi.

“We would like to thank Lin Carter and our partners at the District Attorney’s office for their work on this case,” said Sheriff Charlie Sims. “The FCSO and our investigation team will continue to pursue child predators with the full force of the law.”
