Opelousas man pleads guilty to child porn charges

The following is a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office:

LAFAYETTE-OPELOUSAS, La. – Larry Caillier, II, 32, of Opelousas, pled guilty today to a one count Bill of Information charging receipt of child pornography, United States Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced today. He will be scheduled for sentencing at a later date.

Caillier was indicted in March of this year on three-counts, production of child pornography, use of a facility in interstate commerce to attempt to coerce a minor to engage in criminal sexual acts, and possession of child pornography. Under the terms of the plea agreement reached with the government, that indictment will be dismissed. Callier's guilty plea today was to one count of receipt of child pornography. He faces a maximum term of 20 years and a mandatory minimum term of 5 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both.

Callier was a teacher at Opelousas High School. According to court documents filed today, Callier acknowledged that in February of 2010, he sent text messages to a 15 year old student at the school asking her to send him sexually explicit images of herself. As a result of Callier's request, the student took several sexually explicit images of herself and sent them to him.

The case was investigated by U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys John Luke Walker and J. Collin Sims.
