A sheriff’s deputy in Louisiana was fired and arrested after a video he allegedly filmed surfaced of a woman performing oral sex on her 1-year-old son.
St. Gabriel Police Chief Kevin Ambeau told reporters that 42-year-old Shaderick Jones, a deputy in the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office, had been arrested and terminated after someone brought the two-minute video to the police station on Friday. The clip had allegedly been shared via Facebook, WBRZ-TV reports.
“In my 16 years as the chief of police, I have not seen anything more disgusting and sickening,” Ambeau said of the video.
According to the police chief, Jones went to the home of 26-year-old Iyashasa Todd last week and allegedly persuaded her to sexually assault her young son by threatening her with a traffic arrest warrant. Jones was in police uniform when he filmed the rape. Todd told police that she was afraid of going to prison.
“Mr. Jones coerced her to perform the act on the child; he said that was his fantasy,” Ambeau said.
“He’s disgusting to the badge,” Ambeau told WGMB-TV.
Jones was arrested and charged with possession of child porn and principle to first-degree rape, HuffPost reports. Todd was arrested on Saturday and charged with first-degree rape and incest, WAFB-TV reports. Child Protective Services got involved in the case and Todd’s son is in the custody of his grandmother, WGMB-TV reports.
Jones had previously joined the Iberville Sheriff’s Office in 2015.
