A man from Pride has been arrested on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography.

On May 4, detectives with the Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit (SVU) arrested James Spedale, 30, for possession and distribution of child pornography.

Officials then obtained a search warrant for his home and confiscated several electronic devices for examination. After investigating the devices, LSP detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Spedale, who was taken into custody May 4.

Spedale was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on eight counts of possession of child pornography and 60 counts of distribution of child pornography.
