Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested a south Bossier man Tuesday evening for having sexual relations with at least three juvenile male victims and possessing and producing child pornography.

Terral Anthony Parfait, 51, of 2500 block of Mayflower Road, was arrested and charged with three counts of 1st degree rape (previously known as aggravated rape) of three different young boys, molestation of a juvenile, one count of possession of child pornography and one count of production of child pornography.  All three victims were under the age of 12. 

Parfait is a foster parent currently living alone and admitted to the charges.

At the residence, detectives found evidence of downloadable child pornography and nude photographs that Parfait took of the young male victims.  Detectives confiscated various electronic items from the residence, including computers and flash drives, which they will thoroughly search through as forensic evidence as they continue their investigation; they anticipate more charges will follow.

Detectives determined Parfait has been engaging in sexual relations with young boys for at least seven years, possibly longer.  They are asking anyone if you believe your child has been in contact with Parfait, either through the foster care program or visiting his home, please call Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100.

“This is a horrific situation involving the sickening sexual exploits of this man with these young children,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.  “We will thoroughly continue this investigation to ensure complete charges are brought forth and ensure this man is never able to victimize young people again.”

Parfait was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility Tuesday evening and booked; bond is pending.
