LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Suspended Gueydan Fire Chief Lindsey T. LeBlanc has pleaded guilty in federal court to two counts of attempting to receive child pornography.
During Tuesday's hearing, the 43-year-old LeBlanc acknowledged he asked two undercover officers posing as 14-year-old girls to perform bodily functions while he listened and masturbated during online chats in 2009 and 2010.
The Advocate reports LeBlanc also admitted to having asked one of the officers to send him sexually explicit pictures during one of the chats.
U.S. District Judge Rebecca Doherty said LeBlanc could remain free and in the custody of his parents until he is sentenced at a later date.
LeBlanc was accused of engaging in six chats with officers between 2009 and 2010.
