SAN FRANCISCO — Two months ago, SFPD Internet Crimes Against Children unit began investigating an individual who’d been uploading and trading child pornography online.

The suspect was identified as 36-year-old Billy Lockhart of San Francisco, a psychiatrist employed by the University of California, San Francisco. Investigators also discovered that Lockhart had been using UCSF Wi-Fi to upload the illicit material.

On May 9th, investigators served a search warrant at his home on the 100 block of Buena Vista Terrace. Numerous devices, all containing hundreds of videos and images of child pornography, were found and tied to Lockhart.

A second resident at the home, 33-year-old Benjamin Martin, was also arrested after hundreds of child porn files were found on devices belonging to him as well.

Both are in custody on charges of possession of child pornography and possession of over 600 files of child pornography, with an extra charge of distribution of child pornography for Lockhart.
