CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- An Arizona corrections officer has been arrested after multiple images of child pornography were discovered on his personal computer, according to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.

PCSO spokesman Elias Johnson said a technician at a computer repair shop in Casa Grande found the images after Jeffrey Williams brought his computer in for repair.

The computer contained images and videos of children being sexually abused.

Williams, 46, was arrested at the Arizona State Prison in Florence where he works as a corrections officer.

Authorities seized several more computers and digital media from Williams' home.

During interviews with investigators, Williams admitted to downloading and uploading child pornography on his home computers using Yahoo, according to Johnson.

Williams was booked into the PCSO Adult Detention Center on 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. He is being held without bond.

The investigation and examination of Williams' personal computers is ongoing.
