AG: Grand Isle man arrested for possessing child pornography

GRAND ISLE, LA (WVUE) - A Grand Isle man was arrested Tuesday on six counts of possessing child pornography.

Earl Richoux, 28, is accused of having explicit images and video of children under 13 years old.

He was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center following a joint investigation by the LBI's Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, and the Grand Isle Police Department.

"My office remains committed to finding child predators and taking them off our streets. We will continue in our efforts to bring to justice those who expose and exploit our children," Attorney General Jeff Landry said.
