LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Shelton and Pamela Fruge, a Moss Bluff couple arrested and charged with different sex crimes, remain behind bars on Thursday.

Louisiana State Police arrested Pamela Fruge last week for indecent behavior with a juvenile. She was arrested before that, but was released after bonding out. She was originally arrested and charged with crimes against nature after evidence revealed she performed improper acts with a dog. Her bond is set at $200,000.

Shelton Fruge remains in jail with multiple sex charges including aggravated rape and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. His bond is set at $2 million.

According to LSP Sgt. Stephen LaFargue, evidence of child pornography was found in their home. LaFargue also said that Mr. Fruge admitted to possessing child pornography, and to the molestation of a juvenile.

Animal control has confirmed that the dog, Peanut - a Chihuahua, is in their custody pending the outcome of the charges.
