An LSU student has been arrested after being accused of secretly taking photographs of two 14-year-old girls who were taking a shower in his dorm. LSU Police say that during the investigation, the LSU student was also found to be in possession of child pornography of children under the age of 13.

Andrew Paul Easterly, 18, was charged with attempted production of child pornography, 12 counts of possession of child pornography of children under the age of 13, 11 counts of possession of child pornography of children under the age of 17, two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of juveniles.

The report from the LSU Police Department says two 14-year-old girls met Easterly at a party earlier in the year. The girls mentioned to Easterly they wanted to go on campus one day for a game. The girls told police Easterly suggested they go to the Auburn game on September 9, 2015. 

Both girls told police they concocted a story to fool their parents and were later picked up by Easterly. Both females told police Easterly made advances to them on the way to campus.

Once they arrived to Easterly's dorm room in Herget Hall, all three began drinking Jack Daniels and continued drinking for an hour, according to the report. The trio left the dormitory to walk around campus and ultimately a party off campus. Later that night, when they returned to the dormitory, the girls decided to shower before bed.

Investigators report Easterly took photographs of the girls as they were showering. The girls told officers they were not aware that they were being photographed during their shower. After showering, the girls told officers they returned to Easterly's room and went to bed.

When investigators seized Easterly's electronic devices, they found 23 different photographs of child pornography, including photographs of the 14-year-old girls in the shower. Investigators also noted the "evidence was discovered on the digital devices seized that proved crimes committed by Easterly did occur on the campus of LSU."

Easterly was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison where he has been released on a $185,000 bond.
