BREVARD COUNTY, Fl (BRPROUD) – A 54-year-old man from Lafayette, La was arrested in Florida after allegedly driving to sexually abuse a minor.
According to Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, 54-year-old Pierre Christophe began talking to an undercover agent from Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit in January. Sheriff Wayne Ivey said an investigation was launched after Christophe brought up incest.
“Christophe told the agent that he always wanted to be involved in an incestuous relationship involving a child and subsequently went into specific details about the sexual activities he wanted to engage in with the child,” Ivey said. “Christophe later made arrangements to meet the undercover agent for the purpose of having sexual relations with a minor child and then drove from his home in Louisiana to Brevard County where he was arrested after arriving at the prearranged location.”
Christophe was arrested without incident and taken to the Brevard County Jail Complex. His bond is set at $100,000 bond. He is charged with the use of a computer to facilitate unlawful travel to meet a minor and also the use of a computer to solicit a parent/guardian.
