A Louisiana man is behind bars on accusations he preyed on preteen girls via social media and sexually assaulted a child.
Duane Parker, a.k.a. Johnny Pepper, is charged with:
-- Two counts of online solicitation of a minor
-- One count of aggravated sexual assault of a child
The 49-year-old Lafayette native befriended his victims on Facebook and sent sexual messages to them, the Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable's Office said. Investigators uncovered webcam video of Parker masturbating while discussing what he wanted to do with his victims.
His child sexual assault charge stems from a 2008 outcry from a then 6-year-old girl.
Investigators arrested Parker at a restaurant in Webster, Texas on Aug. 13. More charges are expected.
Prior to these charges, Parker was convicted for indecent exposure after he exposed his genitals to a 17-year-old Starbucks Coffee Company employee.
He is in custody on $300,000 bond, $100,000 for each charge.
Investigators believe more victims could be out there. If you know anything, you are urged to contact the authorities.
