In November of 2019, the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office was called upon to investigate a claim that an adult solicited sexual images from a minor. The alleged suspect was discovered to live in Oklahoma City after numerous search warrants and subpoenas were served.

In April 2021, after receiving a request from the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation’s Internet Crime Against Children Unit opened an investigation. Yesterday, a search warrant was served in Oklahoma City’s 6700 block of South May Avenue based on an investigation by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

Ravia was arrested without incident and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail. Ravia is currently charged with facilitating sexual conduct with a minor, displaying obscene or child pornographic material to a minor, and violating the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.
