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.

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.
