A former Ascension Parish deputy, already facing child pornography and indecent behavior with juveniles charges, was arrested again on Thursday — this time charged with felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.
In the latest charge, Todd Tripp, 24, of 921 A West Elrem St. in Gonzales, is accused of sexual contact with a 16 year old, according to Major Kevin Hanna.
Tripp was terminated after 18 months with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office on Sept. 10 when he was arrested on charges of child pornography and indecent behavior with juveniles.
Tripp was arrested a second time on October 8 on charges of 304 counts of child pornography.
Following Tripp’s second arrest, the investigation continued and detectives discovered Tripp had sexual contact with a 16-year-old juvenile.
He was booked Thursday into the Ascension Parish Jail, where his bond has not yet been set.
