LAKE CHARLES, LA — In January, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Vice Division began an investigation after receiving a report regarding a 13 year old girl living in Calcasieu Parish receiving numerous nude images and sexually explicit messages via Facebook and text messages from a man she met online, later identified as Timothy L. Kelly, 38, of Jeannette, Pennsylvania.
After a month-long investigation, Judge Clayton Davis signed a warrant for Kelly’s arrest and the information was forwarded to Greensburg Police Department in Greensburg, Pennsylvania.
On February 11, Kelly was arrested by Greensburg Police Department and is currently awaiting extradition to Calcasieu Parish where he will be booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with online solicitation of a minor; and indecent behavior involving a minor. Judge Clayton Davis has set his bond on these charges at $700,000.
CPSO Detective Chris Romero is the lead investigator on this case.
