BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

On Tuesday, November 14, a Baton Rouge attorney was arrested again on child pornography charges after being arrested and released in October.

Under the direction of Attorney General Jeff Landry, the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation (LBI) arrested Victor Loraso, 36, of Covington, on the following charges:

  • Possession of sexual abuse images/videos of children under the age of 13 (10 counts)
  • Possession of sexual abuse images/videos of children over 13, but minors (8 counts)
  • Distribution of sexual abuse images/videos of children under the age of 13 (2 counts)

"As a father, I will do anything to protect my son; and as Attorney General, I will do all that I legally can to protect every child in our state. Today's arrest is another testament to the professionalism, dedication, and diligence of my Cyber Crime Unit. Our agents work hard before and after arrests, and I thank them and all who provide assistance to our team," said Landry.

Loraso was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail Tuesday afternoon.

He was previously arrested for similar charges on October 12 and was released after posting bond.

Loraso was previously arrested on three counts of distribution of sexual abuse images/videos of children (under the age of 13). He was arrested and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail following a joint investigation by the LBI Cyber Crime Unit,  Homeland Security Investigations, Louisiana State Police, and the Covington Police Department. 

The AG's office reported Loraso was released after posting a $150,000 bond.

Although he lives in Covington, Loraso is part of a law firm located on North Boulevard in Baton Rouge.
