VIDALIA — Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office recently arrested a man for initiating explicit behavior with a supposed child on a social media platform.
CPSO’s Cyber Crime Unit reportedly began investigating the case on April 5, when an adult male initiated “multiple sexually explicit conversations” with what he believed to be a child using a social media platform and sent “sexually explicit photos to the child, as well as solicited the child to send photos in return” the sheriff’s office states in a news release.
Detectives were able to identify 65-year-old Jimmy D. Clark, of Jayess, as a suspect and a search warrant was executed at his residence, at which time he was placed under arrest.
