A New Iberia man has been arrested on multiple child pornography charges, reports Attorney General Jeff Landry.

Jason Gathe, 32, was arrested on 20 counts of possession of sexual abuse images/videos of children and booked into the New Iberia Parish Prison after a join investigation between the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation (LBI) Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office, and the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office.

"My office and I will continue to do all we legally can to take child predators off Louisiana's streets. We will use every tool in our arsenal to protect our state's children," said Landry.
