METAIRIE – A former deputy with the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office was arrested by State Police for soliciting what he believed to be a minor via the Internet, after he was caught in an on-line sting, according to a statement by State Police spokesman Trooper Melissa Matey.
Michael Chatellier, 38, was arrested Tuesday for “engaging in a sexually explicit manner with undercover agents over the internet. State Police Detectives received information about the indecent behavior of Chatellier with, what he believed was a 14-year-old female in an internet chat room,” said Matey.
Police discovered that Chatellier had been recently released from prison, after serving a two-year sentence for child pornography and computer-aided solicitation of a juvenile, said Matey.
“During the search warrant,” said Matey, “detectives located 116 pornographic images involving juveniles. Chatellier was arrested and booked at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center on five counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile, two counts of computer aided solicitation of a minor, three counts of sex offender registration violations and 116 counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles.”
