More details have been released regarding a West U doctor’s arrest last year for possession of child pornography.
Dr. Robert Kolimas, a West U resident since 1988, was arrested at his home in the 4100 block of Dartmouth on May 30, 2012 after authorities found numerous sexually explicit images of children on his personal computer.
Since his arrest one year ago today, Kolimas has been in and out of court. According to documents on file with the Harris County District Clerk’s Office, he has been allowed to travel numerous times over the past year to visit family in Chicago and Washington D.C.
This past April, Kolimas missed a court appearance, resulting in a revoked bond. The bond was later reinstated in early May, court documents show.
Kolimas was originally charged with five counts of possession of child pornography and posted $100,000 in bonds, records show.
Recent court documents filed with the county clerk’s office also include more details about Kolimas’ arrest.
Sexually explicit images of children were found on Kolimas’ computer while it was being repaired by computer technicians. The images were turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Houston Police Department, who investigated Kolimas and found more than 40 images on his computer.
Court documents graphically depict three different photos that were found on Kolimas’ computer involving infants with grown men. The children in the photos are 12 months old, 18 months old and 5 years old, according to the complaint on file.
In his statement to law enforcement, Kolimas said that we would send the photos of the younger children so he could receive images of teenagers “that he wanted,” the complaint states.
Kolimas has been a medical doctor for more than 25 years. At the time of his arrest he was reportedly employed as a neurologist at the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center but was put on leave.
