In the latest effort to keep Louisiana children safe, the state’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force affiliates have joined forces in arresting eight men for crimes related to the sexual exploitation of children.

Led by Attorney General Buddy Caldwell’s Cyber Crime Unit, Louisiana ICAC task force affiliates comprised of local, state, and federal officials participated in a two week undercover initiative concentrating on offenders who engage in the possession, production, or distribution of child pornography and the commercial or online solicitation of children for sexual purposes.

The operation targeted offenders in the Shreveport-Bossier and Baton Rouge areas.

Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said:

“Working together with our local, state and federal partners is essential in the fight to keep our kids safe from dangerous sexual predators who want to exploit and abuse our children. We remain committed to strengthening our cyber crime resources and abilities to further limit these atrocious acts.”

While most of the eight arrests involve the possession or distribution of child pornography, one arrest includes charges of molestation and indecent behavior with a juvenile.


The coordinated effort included members from the Louisiana Attorney General’s Cyber Crime Unit, Louisiana State Police, U.S. Homeland Security Investigations, Federal Bureau of Investigations, Bossier City Marshal’s Office, Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office, East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office and Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office.
