LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)- Kevin Forestier, 23, of Duson, was arrested on four counts of possession of sexual abuse images/videos of children (under 13), according the state Attorney General’s Office.

The Lafayette Parish School System confirmed today that Forestier was employed as a part-time band instructor at Acadiana High School.

 “He will not be returning to any Lafayette Parish schools,” said LPSS CAO Joe Craig.

This investigation was a joint effort by the LBI Cyber Crime Unit., Homeland Security Investigations, the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Duson Police Department.
 Forestier was booked in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.
“Every time an image or video is viewed or shared, a child is re-victimized,” said Attorney General Jeff Landry. “This is a crime that impacts victims for life. Today’s arrest is another example of the great work done by members of my Cyber Crime Unit and our Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) partners across the state who share in our commitment to doing all we legally can to fight back against child predators.”
