Girard Playground coach faces additional charges of child pornography

METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office has booked Girard Playground coach James Prince with additional charges of child pornography.

A JPSO spokesman says on Oct. 28, detectives executed a search warrant on the items seized from Prince's home. Upon examining the items seized, investigators discovered numerous photos of an unknown male juvenile, approximately 10-14 years of age being photographed in very comprising positions.

Due to the findings, arrest warrants were issued for Prince for Possession of Pornography Involving Juveniles (8 counts) and Producing/Manufacturing Pornography Involving Juveniles (8 counts).

Prince was initially arrested Oct. 23 stemming from an investigation into sexual abuse allegations involving two brothers. The two alleged victims told investigators the incidents occurred when one was either eight or nine years of age and the other 10 or 11 years of age.

They both told investigators the incidents occurred around 2003.  Both victims identified Prince as being the person who committed the acts.

These incidents allegedly occurred while both boys were involved in sports being coached by Prince at the playground.

The victims said Prince would show them pornographic movies while prompting them to masturbate with him. The younger victim also told Investigators that Prince performed oral sex on him.

Investigators soon discovered there was a third young male victim who reported that Prince sexually abused him in the same fashion. Victim three also reported that Prince, at one time, had videos of sexual acts between he and other young boys.
