Two arrested for sexual behavior with juveniles

Caddo Sheriff’s Youth Services detectives arrested two men in unrelated cases for illegal sexual behavior with juveniles last week.

James Percy Hardy Jr., 69, of Greenwood, La., was arrested on two counts of sexual battery for illegally touching a 14-year-old female while she visited his residence at 8449 Kelly Lane last month.

Hardy was arrested by Detective Jared Marshall and was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center. His bond was set at $50,000.

In a separate case, Detective James Moore arrested 33-yearold Terry Matthew Pittman of Keithville, La., for molestation of a juvenile and pornography involving juveniles.

Pittman is accused of having sex with a juvenile numerous times over the years, beginning when she was 11 years old.

During the investigation, Moore seized hard drives and a flash drive belonging to Pittman and recovered numerous videos which contained child pornography.

Pittman was already in CCC after having been arrested earlier by Moore for indecent behavior with a juvenile for sending inappropriate text messages to an underage girl.

His total bond on all three charges is $600,000.

Additional charges could be forthcoming.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
