Stuart - Tuesday February 20, 2024: The Stuart Police Department (SPD) has filed additional charges of child pornography against 61 year old James Ward-Nichols.

Ward-Nichols was initially arrested on one child pornography charge last year on August 26th.

Now, following what police say was a "thorough investigation" and a "confession", Ward-Nichols is facing 20 counts of 'Possession of Child Pornography, 10 Images or More'.

Along with possession of child pornography, Stuart police say that Ward-Nichols has confessed to several other crimes, spanning decades, that have occurred in Stuart, as well as other parts of Florida, and in other states.

Additional charges from other jurisdictions are pending, including a warrant that has been issued for him in Colorado.
