BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Cyber Crime Unit arrested two Vermilion Parish residents earlier this week for internet crimes against children. The arrests resulted from joint investigations with the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation, Louisiana Bureau of Investigation, Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office, Abbeville Police Department, Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, and Homeland Security Investigations.

Joshua Kyle Griffith, 30 of Abbeville, was arrested on 10 counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles Under the Age of Thirteen (Possession).

Cory James Dupuis, 31 of Kaplan, was arrested on 4 counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles Under the Age of Thirteen (Possession).

“Every time a child sexual abuse image or video is viewed, that child is re-victimized,” said AG Jeff Landry. “So my office and I will continue to do all we legally can to protect those children from further harm.”

Griffith and Dupuis were booked into the Vermilion Parish Jail.
