Bogalusa man arrested for computer solicitation
Press Release from the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office:
On December 23, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detective Demmie Rice arrested a Bogalusa male for computer solicitation of a minor.
Anthony Earl Jordan, 44, of Bogalusa, had been engaged in computer dialogue with a female he believed was 14-years- old. After several online discussions, Groove asked the female to meet with him for a sexual encounter.
When Jordan arrived to meet the supposed fourteen year old female, he encountered Detective Rice who revealed that she was the 14-year-old female with whom he had been chatting online. Jordan was arrested at the intersection of Long Avenue and Main Street and transported to jail by Deputy James Gregorio.
Jordan remains in the Washington Parish Jail charged with one count of computer aided solicitation of a minor. His bond has been set at $30,000.
“Please, please, please,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal, “always monitor what your children are doing on the computer. There are always perverts who attempt to lure underage children into sexual encounters through social media outlets. Such sexual behavior is abnormal and totally unacceptable. Mr. Jordan’s disgusting behavior gave him a free ride to the Washington Parish Jail where he, and any others like him, should be for a long, long time. I appreciate Detective Rice’s hard work in identifying and arresting this community menace before he was able to entice a minor female for nefarious purposes.”
