Karate Instructor Arrested On Child Pornography Charges


Police looking into possibility of victims:

A karate instructor from the state of California has been jailed without bond after being arrested on child pornography charges.

Police arrested William Joseph Hazlitt, 27, of Ramona, on Thursday after they discovered that he allegedly was in possession of hundreds of child sexual abuse images on his computer. Some of the children pictured were said to be as young as 9.

Hazlitt is part owner of HT Martial Arts, a karate school popular with local youth in his hometown area. Authorities have stated that the investigation is ongoing, and continue to probe the possibility that Hazlitt could have engaged in inappropriate conduct with some of the students there.

If convicted on all charges, he could face up to 10 years in prison.
