CADDO PARISH, La. (KTBS) - Caddo Sheriff's Youth Services detectives arrested two men in unrelated cases for their alleged roles in sexual behavior with juveniles.

James Hardy Jr., 69 of Greenwood, was arrested for two counts of sexual battery for allegedly illegally touching a 14 year-old female while she visited his home in April. Hardy was arrested by Detective Jared Marshall and was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center. His bond is set at $50,000.

In a separate case, Detective James Moore arrested Terry Pittman, 33 of Keithville, for allegedly molesting a juvenile and pornography involving juveniles. Pittman is accused of having sex with a juvenile numerous times over the years beginning when the victim was 11 years-old. During the investigation, Detective Moore seized hard drives and a flash drive that is believed to have belonged to Pittman and recovered numerous videos that contained child pornography. 

Pittman was already in Caddo Correctional Center after being arrested for allegedly having indecent behavior with a juvenile. In that case, Pittman is accused of sending inappropriate text messages to an underage girl. His total bond on all three charges is $600,000 and authorities say additional charges could be forthcoming.
