28-year-old Casey Huffman, a now-former Kaplan police officer, has been arrested and booked into the Vermilion Parish Jail on multiple child sex charges, according to a press release from Attorney General Jeff Landry.

Huffman has been arrested and charged with the following:

  • 7 counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles Under the Age of Thirteen (possession)
  • 2 counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles Under the Age of Thirteen (production)
  • 3 counts of First Degree Rape of a Juvenile Under the Age of Thirteen

“My Cyber Crime Unit and I are committed to investigating and arresting those who exploit our children, no matter their professions or positions,” says AG Landry. “Crimes against children are some of the most heinous acts imaginable, and they are even more despicable when perpetrated by people in authority who are supposed to be protecting kids.”

According to the press release, the arrest was a result of a joint investigation with the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office, and Kaplan Police Department.
