WASHINGTON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A Mt Hermon man arrested in May by the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office on charges of aggravated rape and sexual battery was re-arrested July 6 on child porn charges.

Bond for David Peek, who has been jailed since his initial arrest, is now set at $660,000. He faces 71 counts of child porn.

Peek’s female victims ranged in age from 3 to 12. Due to privacy concerns for the victims, additional details of Peek’s crime will not be disclosed, Sheriff Randy Seal said.

“This entire matter is despicable and lacks a rational explanation,” Seal said in a news release. “It seems obvious that Mr. Peek not only is a sexual predator but also poses a threat to the community. He is in jail where he belongs. I am grateful to our detective division for the excellent work they have done on this case. If any person has knowledge of the sexual or physical abuse of any child in Washington Parish, please call the Sheriff’s Office at 839-3434 and let us know. We will take action.”
