ECSO Arrests Former Nanny, Foster Parent On Child Sex Charges. Sheriff Morgan Says There Could Be More Local Victims.

April 20, 2020

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office arrested a nanny and foster care provider on child sex charges Monday morning, and the sheriff is warning that there may be additional victims in Escambia County.

Nicole Lynn Walter, age 27 of 10071 Foxrun Road, was charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition with a victim under 16, possession of child pornography, battery of a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence. Walter, according to investigators, is a porn actress.

Walter has also used the names Nicole Steff  and Nicole Stearns, according to investigators.

Sheriff David Morgan said a search warrant found child pornography in her home that possible depicted children in her home or children that are somewhere in Escambia County. He said she previously worked as a nanny and was a licensed foster parent. He asked anyone whose children may have had contact with Walter to call ECSO Investigator  Jeremy Horn at (850) 436-9586 or by email at

During her arrest, Walker allegedly began screaming and attempted to pull away during her arrest and attempted to strike a deputy, according to an arrest report.

Morgan said there has been a “tremendous uptick in online stalking”, often targeting children, during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

“These people are in our neighborhoods and they are preying on our children,” Morgan said, cautioning parents to be aware of what their children are doing online.

Walter was being held in the Escambia County Jail without bond Monday afternoon .

WARNING: Some readers will find the following details from an arrest report disturbing.

According to a tip received by the Florida Abuse Hotline, Walter is self-employed porn actress that makes videos of herself masturbaing in public locations.  Investigators were given a thumb drive containing three video files depicting Walter in various public places masturbating in the presence of the underage victims.

A three-year old female told investigators that Walter touched her privates and took photographs, according to an arrest report.

A Florida Department of Law Enforcement K-9 located a micro SD card underneath drawers in the bedroom that contained child pornography depicting female approximately 10-13 years old nude and posing in sexual positions, the report states. A laptop seized as evidence contained a videos of a completely nude Walter masturbating and engaging in conversation with two children and a third person whose name was redacted from the arrest report.

During one thirty minute video, Walter was  masturbating nude on her bed whild “constantly engaging her children in conversation” as she performed sexuals acts on herself.

The report does not indicate that the children appeared on camera during the videos, but states the conversation in the video clearly indicates the children were present in the room an aware of what was happening.

Walter told investigators she uploads the videos to various pornographic websites for “clients” who pay for such material.

    From what I read and understand these folks receive horrible treatment from fellow inmates in prison. Somehow they forget/forgive horrible treatment to adults but treatment of children of this nature are another story. They seem to want those that hurt children to pay for their crimes.

    Our Lord Jesus Christ can get hold of her heart and change her to be a functioning member of society, however, she will most likely have difficulty forgiving herself. This is sad beyond measure for her and the victims. So sorry for the victims and parents. The kids were so young. I place myself in the parent’s shoes where she was a nanny. How horrible.

    The world is a sick and twisted place and it seems to get worse by the minute.

    DCF…..another case of fine work on your part!!

    Those “clients” are also very much a part of the problem with this evil act on children. I have never understood why anyone would think its ok to involve children in such a act.

    Way to go DCF. Good job vetting your foster parents

    I think Abby was referencing this NEW TESTAMENT verse from Jesus regarding what happens to people who mistreat children:

    Biblical Translations of Matthew 18:6
    “But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

    I have an open mind about most things, but abuse of children is not one of them. I totally agree with this verse and it’s outcome. As a former prison employee, I can tell you that if she is convicted, it won’t go well for her in prison, unless she is kept in segregation for the length of her incarceration. We should pray for her salvation, but the sad truth is that many people with her issues never change. It’s a sickness and it doesn’t just “go away”.

    “Walter is self-employed porn actress that makes videos of herself masturbaing in public locations.” …….. Bet she didn’t put that on her childcare resume.

    How did this person become a licensed foster parent? Something is horribly wrong with the Escambia County foster system. The police should also investigate.

    I just wanna slap that smirk off her face!

  11. Yes!!! on April 21st, 2020 8:05 am

    A stellar local resident.

    Now let’s see are awesome justice system at work,( rhetorical) she will not get the time that she deserves, the justice system is backwards…. A first time nonviolent drug offender will get life in prison or some other dinosaur year sentence, and a Baby Raper male or female, would get a sweet deal…. I see it time and time and again I’ll see child molestors get less time then a drug dealer, or a addict, or somebody with Grand Theft it’s crazy how the justice system be sparing these people….. and in California they’re just trying to make it as a sexual preference they’re trying to normalize it. Sorry for the rant.

    @abby, I am a little confused on how you get from praying for the victim to hoping fellow inmates deal with the accused (she has not been convicted) accordingly. Perhaps my understanding of the New Testament is lacking.

  14. RETIRED on April 20th, 2020 8:27 pm

    you are correct, she might get 6 months and 2-3 years probation

  15. JTV on April 20th, 2020 4:40 pm

    She won’t get half the prison sentence a man would get for the same crime.

  16. abby on April 20th, 2020 4:21 pm

    This makes me beyond sick to my stomach.
    I pray for the victims involved and their families. Hopefully they are able to recieve the proper counseling and help they are going to need in order to overcome and recover from the trauma & abuse.
    As for Nicole and all other people involved in such sick and inhumane behavior, I pray that ESCO finds them all and puts them all in prison and they never get the chance to harm another innocent life.
    There is a special place in Hell for folks of her nature & once she does get to prison like she deserves, I hope the rumor spreads real quick to her fellow inmates her exact reasoning for being there & she will be dealt with accordingly & get the consequence of what every child molester deserves!
    Prayers for all families involved.

    this is a truly sick individual. I hope she stays away a LONG time.

  18. Matchbox on April 20th, 2020 3:50 pm

    Lord please watch over and protect our precious little ones from animals such as this. Justice should be swift and without mercy.

  19. Double Agent on April 20th, 2020 3:40 pm

    This activity is already in “your” neighborhood…. Sad to say but true. You can no longer move “North of the Interstate” or an “adjacent county” to get away from this. Computers and a certain sickness are the foundations.
