Facebook user arrested for failing to register as sex offender

A Shreveport man who thought he was setting up a meeting with a juvenile girl was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender.

Christopher Lee Walker, 32, set up a Facebook account using the name “John Cameron” and had conversations with a Caddo sheriff’s deputy he believed was a 14-year-old girl.

Walker sent a photo of himself to the deputy’s assumed identity and agreed to meet “her” at a local store.

Sheriff’s Detectives Jared Marshall and James Moore were waiting at the store, where they took Walker into custody.

During the investigation, it was determined that, as a previously convicted sex offender, Walker had not completed the proper notifications on his sex offender registration packet indicating he had created and maintained a social networking account.

Walker was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center for failure to register as a sex offender.

His bond was set at $75,000. This is the second time since his conviction in 2001 that Walker has failed to fully register as required by law.
