In October 2016, Detectives with the State Police Special Victims Unit in Alexandria received information indicating that 44-year-old Natchitoches resident Kory Wilson communicated with a juvenile in a sexually explicit manner, and shared images containing explicit material. During the course of the investigation, Detectives learned that Wilson used an electronic device to solicit the juvenile for sexual purposes. Based on their investigation, a warrant for Wilson’s arrest was obtained. During the investigation, it was learned Wilson was working and living at his place of employment in Acadiana.
On November 1, 2016, Louisiana State Police Detectives with assistance from the Department of Homeland Security arrested Wilson at his place of employment without incident. He was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center Jail for Indecent Behavior with a Juvenile, Computer Aided Solicitation of a Minor, and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Juvenile. This case remains under investigation.
