 A Shreveport man has been arrested and charged with 40 counts of possessing, and a single count of distributing pornography involving juveniles, announced the Louisiana Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit.

43-year-old Aaron Wikkerink was arrested Tuesday night as part of a joint investigation involving the Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit, Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office, Shreveport Police Department, Homeland Security Investigations, and the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

Wikkerink is charged with violating a state law forbidding a person to produce, distribute, possess, or possess with the intent to distribute pornography involving juveniles. He was booked into Caddo Correctional Center and faces up to 20 years in prison on each count if convicted. Wikkerink was previously convicted of aggravated incest in 2000.

As internet crimes escalate, Attorney General Buddy Caldwell is allocating resources to vigorously monitor, arrest, and prosecute online child predators. The Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit has investigated thousands of computer crimes which have victimized children from infants to 17 years of age. To report suspected cases of Internet crime, call 1-800-256-4506.
