Attorney General James D. “Buddy” Caldwell today announced that his Cyber Crime Unit (CCU) has arrested three men this week on child pornography charges.

Devlin Barrileaux, 46, of 4419 Norris Road, New Iberia, was arrested Thursday by CCU investigators and booked into the Iberia Parish Jail on 25 counts of possessing pornography involving juveniles, 25 counts of possessing pornography involving juveniles under the age of 13, and a single count of distributing child pornography.  During a search conducted on Barrileaux’s digital media devices, investigators found dozens of images of child pornography. The Attorney General’s CCU was assisted by Homeland Security Investigations and the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office in making the arrest.
In a separate incident, Christopher R. Herrington, 30, of 416 Highpoint Drive, Alexandria, was arrested Wednesday on 40 counts of possessing pornography involving juveniles. A tip from the National Center from Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) led investigators to execute a search warrant on Herrington’s residence, where they found evidence of child pornography. Herrington was booked into the Rapides Parish Jail. The arrest was a result of an investigation involving the Attorney General’s CCU and the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office.
In another unrelated incident, CCU investigators Tuesday charged Reher J. Morris, 27, of 5359 West Main Street, Houma, with 100 counts of possessing and nine counts of distributing pornography involving juveniles. After receiving a NCMEC cyber-tip in August, agents initiated an investigation that led to Morris as a suspect.  A forensic examination of Morris’ electronic devices revealed that he both possessed and distributed child pornography.  He was booked into the Terrebonne Parish Jail.  The arrest was a result of an investigation by the Attorney General’s CCU, Homeland Security Investigations and the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office.
