William Michael Spearman, 58, of Madison Sentenced to Life in Prison for Running Child Sexual Abuse Material Website

Shockingly, the site had different sections specifically catering to the sexual abuse of infants and toddlers, the depiction of children enduring pain and torture, and even tips on evading law enforcement.




Yesterday, a man from Alabama was handed a life sentence for his role in operating a website dedicated to promoting and sharing disturbing images and videos of child sexual abuse. Court documents reveal that William Michael Spearman, a 58-year-old resident of Madison, was the main administrator of this website, which had been active for several years.


Shockingly, the site had different sections specifically catering to the sexual abuse of infants and toddlers, the depiction of children enduring pain and torture, and even tips on evading law enforcement. Spearman not only managed a team of individuals involved in running the site but also recommended users for promotion, maintained records of the illicit content being advertised and distributed, conducted staff meetings, and provided guidance to users and other managers.


Furthermore, he himself advertised and distributed images and videos depicting the sexual abuse of children through the website. This disturbing case came to a close on June 12, 2023, when Spearman pleaded guilty to participating in a child exploitation enterprise. It is worth noting that several other defendants involved with the same website have also been convicted and sentenced in the Southern District of Florida.



The FBI’s Child Exploitation Operational Unit and Miami Field Office, along with the West Palm Beach Resident Agency, have diligently investigated these cases. Trial Attorneys Kyle P. Reynolds and William G. Clayman from the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), along with Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory Schiller from the Southern District of Florida, have worked tirelessly to prosecute this case.


Significant support for these cases has been provided by FBI Field Offices and Resident Agencies in Huntsville, Alabama; Reno, Nevada; Clarksville, Tennessee; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Madison, Wisconsin. Additionally, CEOS’s High Technology Investigative Unit and the U.S. Attorney’s Offices for the Northern District of Alabama, District of Nevada, Middle District of Tennessee, Eastern District of North Carolina, and Western District of Wisconsin have played a crucial role.


This case is part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Justice Department to combat the alarming rise of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and CEOS, Project Safe Childhood brings together federal, state, and local resources to effectively locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children online, while also prioritizing the identification and rescue of victims.
