Crowley Firefighter Faces Computer-Sex Charges

CROWLEY, La. (AP) - A 26-year-old firefighter with the Crowley Fire Department was arrested and booked by special agents with state attorney general's office on charges of computer-aided sexual solicitation of a minor and pornography involving juveniles.

Scotty Lavergne, who lives in Church Point, was arrested at the Central Fire Station in Crowley. Lavergne's arrest is the result of an ongoing Internet undercover operation performed by agents at the attorney general's office.  Lavergne is a captain with the Crowley Fire Department.

Lavergne allegedly established an unlawful Internet relationship with a person who he believed was a 14-year-old female.

Lavergne was charged with two counts of computer-aided sexual solicitation of a minor and another count of pornography involving a juvenile. He was booked and released from the Acadia Parish Jail, then transported to the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, where he was booked and released on a $25,000 bond.
