This morning (February 12, 2020), a Trooper with Louisiana State Police Troop L was taken into custody charged with one count of Production and Distribution of Pornography Involving Juveniles. The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Louisiana State Police Special Victims Unit. The Trooper, identified as 41 year old Jason Boyet, has been placed on administrative leave following the arrest with all law enforcement property and gear recovered.
