A Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy has been arrested on allegations he possessed child pornography, authorities said Wednesday.

Scott C. Cassard, 35, of Terrytown, was booked Tuesday on more than a dozen counts of possessing illicit images of children under the age of 13, said Ruth Wisher, a spokeswoman for Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.

Cassard worked as a bailiff for the Sheriff’s Office and was terminated Tuesday.

His arrest stemmed from an investigation led by the Attorney General’s Office Cybercrime unit and the Sheriff’s Office.
