SEXUAL PREDATOR ARRESTED

 

KENNER – On January 11, 2011, Mitchell J. Rousse, W/M, age 32, of 124 Dianne, Patterson Louisiana, was arrested for one count of computer-aided solicitation for sexual purposes and three (3) counts of Indecent Behavior with a Juvenile.

The undercover operation began on March 2011, when a Kenner detective went into an online chat room posing as a juvenile female from Kenner. Mitchell Rousse, who used the screen name “knight.michael79,” contacted the detective via the chat room. From the onset, Rousse knew he was chatting with a juvenile female. During the course of numerous chats, Langston solicited to have sex with the juvenile female. During three occasions, Langston sent photographs of his exposed penis.

If convicted, Rousse will be required to register as a sex offender and faces imprisonment at hard labor for not less than two (2) years or more than ten (10) years. With multiple charges, however the sentence could be up to twenty-five (25) years

The Kenner Police Department has been and will continue aggressively going after individuals who use the Internet to sexually exploit juveniles from the city of Kenner.
