Trans couple arrested on child pornography charges in Michigan

William Horner, 43, and Stacey Horner, 42, have each been charged with two counts of child sexually abusive material-aggravated possession and two counts of using a computer to commit a crime.


A transgender couple from Laurium, Michigan has been arrested on child pornography charges, according to authorities.

William Horner, 43, and Stacey Horner, 42, have each been charged with two counts of child sexually abusive material - aggravated possession, and two counts of using a computer to commit a crime, police documents state.

They were both arraigned in the 97th District Court on Jan. 19.

Michigan State Police released a statement to the press indicating that authorities had seized digital evidence of the Horner's alleged crimes following a search of the couple's residence.

"The Horner’s were arrested following an investigation which was initiated when it was learned the Horner’s were viewing files of child sexually abusive material on the internet. A search of their residence resulted in digital evidence being seized," the statement said, according to WPBN.

It was later revealed by senior editor of The Post Millennial, Andy Ngo, that William Horner, a trans-identified biological male who goes by the name "Ashley," is a writer who doctors his personal photographs with filters to appear as a teenage girl. Although, he still has a masculine appearance despite the filters.

A quick glimpse at William Horner's X account reveals that he has made posts about pedophilia on numerous occasions, including denouncing accusations that he is a pedophile. His account on X, formerly Twitter, is under the username: @Ayychley.

"I'm sorry that your trolling attempts aren't working for you, lol. You're the only pedo around here," Horner said in one post.

"He's saying my trans flag is a pedo flag," Horner said in another post.

Furthermore, William Horner had complained about people calling him a pedophile on June 3, 2023 and said:

"Tiring. Getting sick of how genuinely mean ppl are on this site...esp if ur trans. Been labeled a pedo repeatedly today. Sounds like nothing but it genuinely starts to hurt when you just realize how surrounded you are with ppl who hate you."

In a follow-up post on the same day, William Horner expressed that he had been debating deleting his social media account over "pedophile" and "groomer" accusations. He stated that he had been living "in fear" due to the allegations.

Horner wrote: "It's no longer the trans allies that are going after me hardest. Every time I look at twitter I'm getting called a pedo, a groomer and warned about the wood chipper. It's kind of shocking and really upsetting. I'm not going to give in and leave twitter but it's to the point now where Twitter is just upsetting and depressing. I'm not sure how so many ppl are capable of hating me so viscerally. I try so hard to be polite."

"Nor do I hide from reality and my relevance to the trans movement. I have worked so hard to do what I can to undermine the bullsh*t the prog left is doing. I've been swatted, sent death threats…..and that's not even the worst fall out I (and @warwallaby) have experienced in the last two years. I won't say what it is here be I don't want to validate it or give anyone ideas...but telling me I'm guilty of what happens to ppl's children is f*cking too far. I can't do anymore," he continued.

"I've put my life and everything else on the line by standing against this the way that I have...I've genuinely spent the last year in fear," said Horner.

William Horner also appears to be a firearm owner. In a post earlier this month, Horner published a photo of a new LGBTQ patch for a bullet proof vest which appears to be his, according to the photo.

If convicted, the Horners could face up to ten years in prison for child sexually abusive material-aggravated possession, as well as ten years in prison for using a computer to commit a crime.
