The woman who took on Canadacreep
A Calgary woman who sparked en-masse reporting of the voyeuristic Canadacreep Twitter account to authorities says she was disgusted to hear the suspect in the case faces additional charges related to child pornography.
Jeffrey Robert Williamson, 42, is accused of filming women without their knowledge and posting the images online under the Twitter handle “Canadacreep.”
He was charged last week with three counts each of voyeurism and publication of voyeuristic recordings in relation to three alleged incidents and later released on bail, but freedom would be short-lived. Calgary police announced Williams was arrested again on Friday and charged Saturday with possession of child pornography and accessing child pornography.
Twitter user Jessica Phillips brought the account to the attention of popular Calgary social media figure @Crackmacs last week. Crackmacs urged its followers to report the self-titled creep to Calgary police and just one day later, the account — which had more than 17,000 followers — was shut down and police announced the initial voyeurism charges.
Phillips said she was “just relieved” to know her actions may led to a voyeur being taken off the street.
