[Watch] Bill Gates Personal Engineer Arrested at Gates Mansion For Trading Over 6,000 Child Porn Pictures

A Seattle man employed as an engineer, and residing at Bill and Melinda Gates’ estate in Medina, Washington has confessed to amassing a 6,000-image child pornography collection and trading child rape photos using his Gmail account.

King County prosecutors say Rick Allen Jones admitted he’d been collecting child rape videos and photos for a decade before police intervened in March. According to police, Jones, 51, was first contacted by police at the Microsoft founder’s estate while working for the billionaire couple.

Jones drew investigators’ attention in late 2013 after sharing a suspicious photo through Google’s email service. According to charging papers, the photo captured the sexual exploitation of two pre-teen boys.

Two detectives drove to the sprawling, lakefront estate and met Jones in the estate security office, according to charging papers. They then interviewed him in a parked SUV.

After being read his rights, Jones claimed he shared child pornography online just once but then admitted he’d been collecting, and sharing them for years, the Seattle detective said in charging papers.

“Jones said that he had been collecting (child pornography) for about 10 years now and has had an interest in young boys since he himself was a teenager,” the detective told the court.

Detectives have since reviewed electronics seized from Jones’ apartment. They claim to have uncovered 6,495 images known to law enforcement to be child pornography, including 133 in which the children abused on camera have been identified by police. Among the images were photos showing the anal rape of an 8- to 10-year-old boy and a rape of an 8- to 10-year-old girl.

Jones was charged with possession of child pornography in King County Superior Court. He has not been jailed and has not yet entered a plea.
