The following is a Press Release from James D. Caldwell Attorney General's Office: 

A Eunice man has been arrested and charged with pornography involving juveniles and computer-aided solicitation of a minor, announced Attorney General Buddy Caldwell.

Scott Nicholas Martel, 22, of 1401 W. Park Ave., was arrested Friday as a result of a joint investigation involving the Louisiana Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit, Baton Rouge Constable's Office, Fergus County Sheriff's Department (State of Montana), and Eunice Police Department.  Martel was booked into the Eunice Police Department.

If convicted, Martel could face up to 10 years in prison and would be required to register as a sex offender.

Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has earned a solid reputation for vigorously monitoring, arresting, and prosecuting online child predators.  The Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit has investigated thousands of computer crimes such as identity theft, Internet fraud, and cyber-stalking. Yet, most of the unit's investigations have involved crimes against children--boys and girls ranging from the ages of six- months-old to 17-years-old.  Investigators have said computer-facilitated child exploitation impacts children of all races and socio-economic levels.  To report suspected cases of Internet crime, call 1-800-256-4506.
