The case was investigated by the Attorney General’s Office cyber crimes detectives and St. Landry detectives.
“Online criminals are elusive and are constantly changing their schemes and methods on the internet,” Caldwell said. “We are currently working to enhance the technology and tools we need to fight these online predators who prey on our children.”
Investigators discovered dozens of pornographic images and videos, Caldwell said.
