NORFOLK, Va. – A former assistant Commonwealth’s attorney for Norfolk was arrested for attempting to take indecent liberties with children 14 years old or younger via online chat groups.
Timothy Carnes, 41, served with the city from November 2004 to May 2008. A spokesperson for the city said they will not be handling the case, and a special prosecutor will be appointed.
Carnes’ incident report reads that he was arrested during an undercover operation targeting people suspected of inappropriate communication with minors.
