Slidell man arrested for distributing child pornography


A Slidell man has been arrested and charged with 25 counts of distributing pornography involving juveniles, announced Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell.

29-year-old Jeremy Petry, of the 100 block of Herwig Bluff Drive, was arrested Wednesday as part of a joint undercover investigation into the downloading and distribution of child pornography. After a search warrant was executed at Petry's residence, he was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.

Petry is charged with violating a state law forbidding a person to produce, distribute, possess, or possess with the intent to distribute pornography involving juveniles. If convicted as charged, he faces up to 20 years in prison on each count of child pornography.
