Acadia Parish Sheriff's deputies have identified seven sex offenders who have been in violation of sex offender social media laws, Sheriff KP Gibson says.
Between March of 2020 and July of 2020, the sheriff's sex offender registry unit conducted an investigation of all registered sex offenders in the parish, to ensure they were following the law regarding use of social media.
They found seven registered sex offenders were using social media illegally, but not posting on their profile that they were convicted sex offenders, conviction information, address, and other information required by the Louisiana sex offender registry laws concerning social media use.
"We take the safety of our community and our families seriously," Gibson said. "We simply want convicted sex offenders to comply with their lawful requirements. Failing to follow the social media requirements concerns me and is a safety issue. Our registry unit has been aggressive regarding sex offender requirements and I appreciate the work our deputies have been doing."
Felony arrest warrants were obtained and the following were taken into custody during the investigation:
Edward Boast, 47, of Church Point.
Mckenzie Olivier, 33, of Church Point.
David Chaisson Sr., 47, of Crowley.
Derrick Breaux, 31, of Church Point.
Peter Miller, 56, of Church Point.
Two still are wanted on warrants:
Rickey Boudreaux , 60, of Church Point
Records show Boudreaux was convicted of indecent behavior with juveniles in 2000.
Terry Taylor, 28, of Branch.
Records show Taylor was convicted of carnal knowledge of a juvenile in 2013.
