Livingston Parish couple charged with rape, child porn

The Louisiana Attorney General’s Office is serving as the lead investigating agency into a case involving a former Livingston Parish teacher and her husband, a former law enforcement officer, charged with rape and possession of child porn.

Cynthia Perkins, 34, is charged with two counts of first degree rape and 60 counts of pornography involving juveniles. She has been booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center and bail is set at $500,000.

According to various media reports posted online, Cynthia Perkins resigned from her post as a teacher at Westside Junior High on Wednesday.

Mrs. Perkins’ husband, 44-year-old Dennis “Denny” Perkins, is in custody at the Sabine Parish Detention Center. He is charged with 60 counts of Production of Pornography Involving a Juvenile under the age of 13, 2 counts of First Degree Rape, 3 counts of Possession of Pornography Involving a Juvenile under the age of 13, 2 counts of Video Voyeurism, and 2 counts of Obscenity, and obstruction of justice.

He had served at the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office since 2002.

LPSO spokeswoman Lori Steele said Lt. Denny Perkins was a Livingston Parish Sheriff's deputy since 2002. He was terminated when Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard was made aware of the charges and evidence was provided by investigators with the Attorney General’s Office.

Sheriff Jason Ard said, "It is a sad day for us, for all law enforcement officers, when you arrest one of your own. We at the LPSO work hard everyday to retain the trust placed in us by our citizens. I understand this was a veteran law enforcement officer, one who had dedicated a lot of time and effort into this community, but as I have said in the past - no one is above the law. This type of alleged behavior will not be tolerated by me or anyone at the LPSO. I do not condone these alleged acts. I am disappointed. I have always considered Denny a friend and a family member. The Attorney General’s Office is leading this investigation. We are assisting and offering to cooperate in any way we can.”

Both arrests were the result of a joint investigation with the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation (LBI), Louisiana State Police, and Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office, Landry said.
