MANDEVILLE — A Trooper with Louisiana State Police Troop L was taken into custody charged with one count of Production and Distribution of Pornography Involving Juveniles.

State Police say the Trooper, identified as 41-year-old Jason Boyet, has been placed on administrative leave following the arrest with all law enforcement property and gear recovered.

The investigation began as Special Agents developed information of a subject, later identified as Boyet, producing and distributing pornographic images on a web based application. Agents identified Boyet as the online user and placed him into custody following an interview.

Boyet was booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail without incident. The investigation remains ongoing with the potential for additional charges.

This investigation was made possible through the cooperation and coordination of the FBI-New Orleans Field Office.

In 2018, Boyet was recognized as the Louisiana State Police Troop L Trooper of the Year.
