Rutledge Announces Arrest of Faulkner County Man for Crimes Involving Children
January 9, 2018
LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today announced the arrest of Steven Wayne Bramlett, of Conway, on 30 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child, a Class C felony.
Bramlett, 56, was arrested by the Attorney General’s office Cyber Crimes Unit. He is being held in the Faulkner County Detention Center on $1 million bond.
Special agents in the Attorney General’s office began investigating Bramlett after agents determined that someone using a computer at Bramlett’s address downloaded sexually explicit material involving children.
Bramlett was convicted in 1979 of attempted capital murder and was sentenced to life in prison. In 2015, the Arkansas Supreme Court overturned his sentence because he was 17 at the time of his offense. He was resentenced and released in February 2016.
