Round Rock man accused of possession of child porn


Highlights

Sergeant found six child porn photos on Eric Lucas’ desktop computer at his home, affidavit says.

Eric Lucas is a director of security for Compass Group, according to records at Williamson Justice Center.

A Round Rock man is accused of having six pornographic photos of children on his home computer, according to an arrest affidavit.

Eric Christopher Lucas, 45, was charged with six counts of possession of child pornography, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Lucas is a director of security at Compass Group, according to records at the Williamson County Justice Center. Compass Group is a nationally based food service and hospitality company, according to its website.

A sergeant assigned to the child exploitation unit of the Texas attorney general’s office used a search warrant to find the child pornography photos on Lucas’ desktop computer Wednesday, the affidavit said.

The photos are all of a girl approximately six to eight years old including some that show her being sexually assaulted, according to the affidavit.

Lucas was being held Thursday in the Williamson County Jail with no bail yet set.
