Shreveport Man Arrested for Failure to Register as Sex Offender
A 32-year-old Shreveport man who thought he was arranging a meeting with a 14-year-old girl has been arrested for failing to register as a sex offender.
In a news release, Sheriff Steve Prator says Christopher Lee Walker set up a Facebook account using the name “John Cameron” and had conversations with what he thought was the teenager. It was actually a Caddo deputy.
The sheriff says Walker sent a photo of himself to the deputy’s assumed identity and agreed to meet “her” at a local store. But, when he got there, Detectives Jared Marshall and James Moore were waiting for him and took him into custody.
Their investigation revealed that Walker was a previously-convicted sex offender and that he had not completed the proper notifications on his sex offender registration packet indicating the he had created and maintained a social networking account. It was the second time since his conviction in 2001 that Walker has failed to fully register as required by law. He was booked into Caddo Correctional Center for failure to register as a sex offender. His bond’s been set at $75,000.
