TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A convicted sex offender has been busted again. Billy Dewayne Mills is under arrest and facing child pornography charges.

It's all part of a bigger bust -- 245 were arrested worldwide, most of them in the U.S., during a month-long child-porn investigation.

Billy Mills was arrested at his home on Tucson's northwest side in November after an 8-month investigation by Federal Authorities.

Court documents reveal details about what the convicted sex offender told investigators.

According to the complaint, Billy Mills admitted he had been using his laptop and the internet to search for child pornography images and videos, which he viewed and then deleted.

This started in March when investigators with Homeland Security noticed Mills' IP address sharing child porn files over the internet.

Documents say that happened at least 10 times over the 8-month period.

We visited Mill's home and talked to one of his roommates who said he was too embarrassed to talk. He didn't want to be identified but tells us he was trying to help Mills turn his life around.
