San Diego- A former San Diego State University (SDSU) football player has been arrested and charged with possession of child pornography. 20-year-old Ewakiko Nowlin was the subject of an investigation into a reported gang rape that occurred off-campus in the College Neighborhood of San Diego in late 2021.
Sex Crimes Investigators served multiple search warrants during the investigation into the reported gang rape and recovered several terabytes of digital evidence. Detectives discovered that Nowlin was in possession of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM), commonly known as child pornography. The case was then turned over to investigators from the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC).
Police obtained a court-authorized arrest warrant based on their investigation, and Nowlin turned himself into authorities. He was booked into the San Diego County Jail on one felony charge of possession of child pornography.
The arrest of Nowlin serves as a reminder of the importance of investigating all types of crimes thoroughly. The investigation into the reported gang rape led to the discovery of Nowlin’s possession of child pornography, which would not have been uncovered otherwise. Law enforcement agencies are committed to holding individuals accountable for their actions, and the San Diego ICAC Task Force is dedicated to investigating crimes involving the exploitation of children.
Anyone with information about crimes involving the sexual exploitation of children is urged to contact the San Diego ICAC Task Force at (858) 715-7100 or visit www.cybertipline.com. The SDPD also encourages anyone who has been a victim of sexual assault to report the incident to law enforcement.
