A St. Landry Parish man is jailed after soliciting what he thought was a 15 year old girl, for sex.
Nicholas Rodriguez was taken to the St. Landry Parish Jail where he was charged with 2 counts of Computer aided Solicitation of a Minor, 1 count Pornography Involving Juveniles and 2 counts of Indecent Behavior with a Juvenile.
The St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office Internet Crimes against Children Task Force while working in an undercover capacity began chatting with the above mentioned subject on September 14, 2010.
Agents posing as an underage female were contacted by this individual in a Louisiana chat room. This individual thought he was chatting with a fifteen year old female.
On 9/14 this subject sent the agent indecent photos of himself via the computer. On 9/15 the same subject again made contact with the agent at which time he directed her to a pornographic site on the computer and told her to watch it to familiarize herself with sex. The subject advised the agent that he wanted to have sex with her.
On 9/16 the suspect informed the agent he was coming to meet her to have sex with her. A special meeting place was set up in Opelousas. After waiting at the designated meeting area the suspect contacted the agent and stated he saw some police cars in the area and freaked.
On 9/17/2010 the suspect again contacted the agent and asked her to send nude photos of herself.
