Tangi Man Charged With Computer-Aided Solicitation of Minor

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office was contacted on January 24, 2019 by the Nebraska State
Patrol advising of an active internet crimes case linking Tickfaw resident   Rodney Magee (21) to a juvenile female in the Nebraska area.

Upon investigation and review of case files, a warrant was obtained and Magee was taken into custody at this residence without incident. He was charged with computer-aided solicitation of a minor.

Sheriff Edwards urges parents to keep an eye on their children’s online activity, especially if kids become defensive. "Our kids are vulnerable and they spend a lot of time in the same place as sexual predators, the Internet,” says Edwards. “It starts with a simple conversation on the computer, however can quickly escalate into something much more dangerous. If you think something is going on, always trust your parental intuition and look further,” Edwards adds.
