Tennessee man arrested for multiple sex crimes with New Orleans juvenile

ST. BERNARD PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Deputies arrested a Tennessee man for committing multiple sex crimes with a juvenile from New Orleans. John Lynch, 53, of Chattanooga was taken into custody, Wednesday.

Police say that Lynch was stopped on traffic charges Wednesday night. A sheriff's deputy further investigated after learning that a girl in the car with him was only 15-years-old. He was booked with one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile. St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office Juvenile Division detectives conducted a follow-up investigation which resulted in more charges against Lynch.

They learned that Lynch and the juvenile met on the internet several months ago. They planned for Lynch to drive in from Tennessee and meet the juvenile while she was staying with relatives in St. Bernard Parish.

Lynch was charged with two counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile for having sex with her, two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Law enforcement in Tennessee and authorities with the Louisiana Attorney General's Office are also investigating Lynch. He is being held in St. Bernard Parish Jail. His bond has been set at $750,000.
