Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington says a Bossier City man was arrested Friday night for possessing sexual images of children and images of animals and humans engaged in sexual acts.
Travis R. Labonte, 41, was charged with 186 counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles and four counts of Sexual Abuse of an Animal. He turned himself into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility late on March 12 on the arrest warrant charges. His total bond is set at $1,150,000.
Detectives began an investigation in late February of Labonte after they suspected him to be in possession of child sexual abuse images. Following a thorough investigation and forensic analysis of his electronic devices, Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives issued the arrest warrants.
“Our team of detectives is steadfast in its resolve to capture these criminals who prey on young people,” said Sheriff Whittington. “These are heinous examples of crimes of depravity and deviancy. If you possess, transfer or manufacture sexual images of children or of images involving sex acts between animals and humans, our detectives will conduct a thorough investigation. They will use best digital forensics’ tools available. You will be caught. You will be jailed.”
