Louisiana man arrested for 900 counts of child pornography

WVLA - 51-year-old Steven Everhardt of Baton Rouge was arrested for the possession and distribution of child pornography Monday.

Louisiana State Detectives launched an online undercover investigation in November 2017 to eliminate human trafficking and child pornography. 

During this investigation, thousands of videos and images of children engaging in inappropriate sex acts were discovered from Everhardt.

As a result, Louisiana's Special Victims Unit (SVU) and the Baton Rouge FBI issued a search warrant at Everhardt's home on March 23.

Numerous electronic devices were seized from his residence during the search and an arrest warrant was obtained.

On April 2, Everhardt was charged with 900 counts of possession of child pornography and 30 counts of distribution of child pornography (under age 13).

He has been booked at the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail.
