ABILENE, Texas — Abilene Police Department Cyber Crimes Unit detectives arrested an Abilene man Friday, Oct. 29 after executing a search warrant at a home in north Abilene.
Nils Dean Donnell, 69, was charged with third-degree felony possession of child pornography and transported to the Taylor County Jail. His bond was set at $20,000 and he has since bonded out, according to an APD release.
Donnell previously served in occupations that dealt directly with children, the release said.
Detectives are asking anyone who had questionable dealings with Donnell to contact them at the non-emergency number, 325-673-8331.
Abilene Independent School District issued the following statement regarding Donnell via email:
"Mr. Donnell was a paraprofessional in the Abilene ISD from 2004-15. Because he hasn’t worked for the district in more than six years, we have no further comment."
