Three Suspects Arrested for Sex Trafficking of a Child

Saturday (February 2, 2019), Louisiana State Police Troop N responded to a call at the Sheraton Hotel on Canal Street. While the Troopers were conducting the initial investigation, they determined that one of the subjects they were interviewing was a missing 16-year-old juvenile being sought as a runaway. Troopers further determined that the juvenile had been beaten, drugged, raped and “pimped” out by several different men in the past several days. The juvenile was taken to a local hospital for medical evaluation and reunited with her family.
Detectives from the Special Victims Unit identified three suspects from St. Tammany Parish who were involved with the juvenile sex trafficking. Detectives began working closely with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, who were actively searching for a runaway 17-year-old, identified as Destiny Mears of Mandeville. Through a coordinated effort with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, Detectives identified two additional suspects along with Mears, 39-year-old Jayson Figueroa and 23-year-old Cordarrell Roudolph, both of Slidell.

Figueroa and Roudolph were both identified as the individuals who drugged the juvenile with Xanax, Opioids and other drugs, raped her while she was incapacitated and beat her. Mears was identified as attempting to recruit the juvenile into prostitution.

On Monday, February 4, 2019, all three suspects were located in St. Tammany Parish. Arrest warrants were obtained and Figueora and Roudolph were booked into the St. Tammany Parish jail for Trafficking of a Child for Sexual Purposes, Second Degree Rape and Felony Carnal Knowledge of a Juvenile. Mears was booked for Trafficking of a Child for Sexual Purposes.

The investigation is ongoing and additional arrests may be forthcoming.
