The Office of the Attorney General in Louisiana said in a statement that his office and nearly a dozen other agencies are proud to announce another huge victory for both law enforcement, the American people, and most importantly our children; as authorities across the Southern United States of America have taken down a dark web network of child pornography that leads back to two men in Louisiana.
According to the Louisiana Cyber Crimes Unit they're dedicated to removing the plague of degeneracy and filth that's connected to a nationwide and global network of pedophiles; and today's arrests bring forth a whopping 68 counts of charges involved in the widespread conspiracy to transmit illicit imagery of underage children engaged in forced sexual perversion with adults.
In the grand scheme, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says two major arrests of the leadership involved in the dark web network were taken into custody as a result of the investigation.
The AG’s Office<a href="https://www.ag.state.la.us/Article/6510/5"> said in a Press Release </a>that 30-year-old Javier Young of Bunkie, Louisiana, and 39-year-old Travis Fontenot of Eunice City, Louisiana; were both leading the operations of the child pornography distribution ring connected to the unnamed websites respectively from their homes inside of the great state of Louisiana.

A joint investigation involving the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation's Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, the Avoyelles Parish Sheriff’s Office, and the Bunkie Police Department led authorities to a dark web network involving multiple websites that have thousands of pedophiles receiving and uploading Child pornography.
During a several-month-long investigation, authorities and agents posing as other pedophiles were able to infiltrate the ranks of that website gaining the trust of some of the administration; enough so that they were given moderator roles for the website.
Eventually, using techniques that are considered classified, the joint task force of law enforcement were able to pull IP addresses from various accounts that could be tied to the site's administration.
Either way, the brilliance of the agents involved not only infiltrated the ranks of the sickening child pornography ring but also were able to then gain the IP addresses of the administrators to monitor their electronic communications.
Those transmissions first directed authorities to a residence in Bunkie, Louisiana; where at that location the joint task force says Javier Young was sending out endless data which contains files that comprised child pornography.
The majority of those files which were being sent are known to the database of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children as being videos and images of prepubescent children who have been either kidnapped, raped, abused or sexually assaulted in some way.
Investigators then obtained a search warrant for that home and seized dozens of servers, hard drives, computers, cameras with SD cards, tablet, and mobile devices, and a multitude of other evidence.
Not only did law enforcement find a treasure trove of illicit child pornography, but they were also then able to connect with another location in Eunice City that Javier Young had been in direct communications with.
Young was arrested and now faces a whopping 60 felony counts of possession of child pornography and 2 counts of distribution of child pornography. He was booked into Avoyelles Parish Jail where he will be held without bond.
Following the arrest of Young, the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation's Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office, and the Eunice Police Department then raided the home belonging to Travis Fontenot; in which evidence including several computers and hard drives were taken for forensic examination.
It's believed that Fontenot was also directly involved in the operations of the child pornography distribution ring, and evidence found on his electronics devices confirms that he was also in the possession of multiple child pornography images and videos.
Fontenot was then arrested and now faces 6 counts of distribution of sexual abuse images/videos of children, and was taken to the Eunice jail to be held without bond until a later hearing.
AG Landry has made numerous child pornography arrests of pedophiles in 2017, and he says that wiping these monsters off the face of the map will continue to be a crucial goal of his office in 2018.
“Protecting children from child predators has always been, and will continue to be, a priority of my office,” said Attorney General Landry. “My team will use every tool we have to locate, investigate, and arrest those who exploit our children.”
The operation was led by the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation (LBI) Cyber Crime Unit, the Homeland Security Investigations Unit (HSI), the Avoyelles Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Bunkie Police Department, the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office, and the Eunice Police Department; all of which deserve extraordinary credit in their efforts to remove these threats to the children of our nation from the society.
Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Cyber Crime Unit has investigated thousands of computer crimes that have victimized children from infants to 16 years of age.
Everyone should give thanks to Attorney General Jeff Landry, not only in his efforts to hunt pedophiles in his state but because he's also a veteran of the first Iraqi Conflict, Desert Storm.
He exited military with the rank of Sergeant, where he received the Army Achievement Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, a National Defense Ribbon, an Overseas Training Ribbon, and the Louisiana War Cross from his eleven years of service as a member of the Louisiana National Guard.
