Yesterday, New Orleans Police arrested 66-year-old Earl Frederic in connection with Possession of Child Pornography.
On Tuesday, Frederic’s employer had discovered that Frederic had been downloading child pornography on his office computer and notified the NOPD. In a joint investigation by the NOPD Child Abuse Unit and the Attorney General’s office, a warrant was obtained for Frederic’s office where a computer and several thumb drives were confiscated. A search warrant was subsequently obtained for Frederic’s residence where investigators confiscated additional evidence of child pornography.
Earl Frederic was arrested for Possession of Child Pornography and held on a $25,000 bond. Frederic has since posted bond and was released.
The Attorney General’s office will conduct computer forensic examinations on the evidence confiscated. The initial investigation revealed numerous child pornography images.
