Vernon Parish– In October 2022, Louisiana State Police Special Victim’s Unit (LSP SVU) conducted an investigation into the computer aided solicitation of a juvenile. During the course of the investigation, it was determined that the suspect was communicating with a juvenile by sharing explicit images.
As a result of the investigation, LSP SVU determined the identity of the suspect as 50-year-old Ryan Keeton of Leesville. On October 13, 2022, with the information obtained, a probable cause arrest was made. Keeton was charged with computer aided solicitation of a minor, indecent behavior with a juvenile, and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. Keeton was arrested and booked into the Vernon Parish Jail.
