The following is a news release from the Louisiana State Police:

SULPHUR – On January 14, 2011, after developing additional information, detectives with the Lake Charles Field Office of the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations charged 34-year-old Jamy Church of Sulphur with an additional 33 counts of computer-aided solicitation of a minor.  Church was originally arrested on January 6, 2011, by State Police detectives for pornography involving juveniles.

Thus far, the investigation has uncovered 33 juvenile victims from Southwest Louisiana with the possibility of additional victims in Texas and other areas of Louisiana.  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations and the Texas Rangers are assisting with the investigation.

During an interview, Church admitted to posing as a female by the name of "Hope Smith" in various chat rooms.  Church would engage in sexually explicit conversations with juvenile males via the chat rooms.  Church enticed some of the juvenile males into sending sexually explicit photographs and videos of themselves by using a female persona.

A forensic examination of Church's computer revealed various personas using the same technique of posing as a female and chatting with juvenile males.  The email identities that he used are listed below:

"I have no greater responsibility as State Police Superintendent than to protect Louisiana's greatest asset, our children.  I am also a father who is reminded everyday of the importance of keeping our children safe from those who prey on their innocence," said Colonel Mike Edmonson.  "State Police will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to identify and arrest any person who victimizes or attempts to victimize our children."

The investigation is continuing and Church remains in the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center on $335,000 bond.

    It's no fun getting a pay raise only to have it eaten up by an increase in your bills, which is what's happening with federal tax reform in Louisiana.
