Detectives with the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations have arrested a 46-year-old Shreveport man after serving an arrest and search warrant at his residence.

Joseph Kipp Girdner was booked into Caddo Correctional Center on a charge of computer-aided solicitation of a juvenile and six counts of indecent behavior with juveniles.

Senior Trooper Brett Davis says the arrest was the result of an investigation into computer-aided solicitation that started during the recent Louisiana State Police Carpe Diem initiative.  Detectives say they were able to determine that Girdner was responsible for contacting somebody he thought was a 13-year-old girl by using electronic devices. Davis says Girdner admitted to the charges during questioning.  Detectives have also seized electronic devices from his home for forensic analysis.

Davis says, if convicted, Girdner faces up to a $40,000 fine and anywhere from seven to forty-five years in prison without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence.
