OBERLIN, LA (KPLC) -

An Oberlin man is accused of distribution of child pornography.

According to Louisiana State Police, Troop D, on Nov. 28, investigators assigned to the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations, Allen Parish Sheriff's Office and U.S. Homeland Security Investigations conducted a search warrant at the residence of 23-year-old James Horce Deculus Jr., of Oberlin.

Troopers said the warrant was the result of an Operation Child Watch investigation initiated by State Police detectives involving the possession, manufacture and distribution of child pornography by Deculus.

Troopers said an examination of computer-related evidence at the home confirmed that Deculus was downloading and distributing child pornography images via the Internet.  

Deculus was arrested for pornography involving juveniles (LRS 14:81.1) and booked into the Allen Parish Jail. The investigation is continuing, according to troopers.

Troopers said if convicted, Deculus faces up to a $50,000 fine and from five to 25 years in prison without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence. In addition, personal property used in the commission of the offense is subject to seizure and public sale or auction by the district attorney.

According to troopers, the mission of Operation Child Watch is to rescue children from the potential abuse of child predators by targeting those individuals with sexually explicit images and/or videos on their computers. The Louisiana State Police, in cooperation with other law enforcement agencies, will continue our efforts to help ensure the safety of children.
