Child Porn Charges Against Sex Offender Increased In Caddo Parish
Back in September of 2022, Caddo Parish Sheriff's Deputies were made aware that a local registered sex offender may be in possession of child pornography. The tip came in from the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), and indicated that 34-year-old Timothy Hendricks of Keithville was the suspect.
Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office Detective Jared Marshall led the investigation, and on November 9th, 2022 a search warrant was executed on Hendrick's residence in Keithville. Afterwards, Hendricks was arrested and charged with four counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles. He was booking into the Caddo Correctional Center at that time.
Hendricks had been found guilty on federal child pornography charges in 2010, which designated him as a registered sex offender.
At the time of Hendricks arrest and booking, the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office indicated that the investigation was ongoing. Stating that more charges may be brought, which is what happened this week.
After further investigation from the Sheriff's Office, more files were found in Hendricks' possession. This has led to an additional 24 counts of Possession of Pornography Involving Juveniles being brought against Hendricks. He now faces a total of 28 charges at this time.
The release from the Sherriff's Office announcing the additional charges did not indicate if the investigation has concluded.
