Neil Hawley

For the second time in less than three months a Defuniak Springs man has been arrested for possession of child pornography.

Thursday, members of the Walton County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit and Criminal Investigations Unit executed a search warrant at 78 West Violet Lane in DeFuniak Springs.

Numerous videos containing prepubescent children performing sexual acts were located on a laptop inside the home.

Neil Hawley, 37, was arrested and charged with four counts of possession of child pornography. Hawley was given a $20,000 bond and is still in jail at the time of this release.

In September, Hawley was arrested on similar charges and received a $10,000 bond.
