BATON ROUGE, LA - Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Cyber Crime Unit has arrested a Baton Rouge man for indecent behavior and solicitation of a minor.

"This is yet another solemn reminder of the dangers children can face while on the internet," said AG Landry. "At a time when children are spending more time online, my office is doing all we legally can to bring to justice those who seek to harm them."

Joseph Wa-Ilunga, 26 of Baton Rouge, was arrested and charged with one count of Indecent Behavior With Juveniles and one count of Computer-Aided Solicitation of a Minor. The arrest was a result of a joint investigation with the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Louisiana State Police, and East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office. Wa-Ilunga was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
