Help sought in internet crimes against children

Matthew Miller
Attorney General Jeff Landry is asking for the public’s help in an ongoing investigation into a Sabine Parish man accused of forcing young girls to produce child pornography.

“It is crucial that people who are exploiting children are found and brought to justice,” said General Landry. “The victimization of our State’s youth will not be tolerated by my office; and we will continue working with our law enforcement partners to put an end to it.”

Matthew L. Miller, 17, of Florien, was arrested on one count of Sexual Abuse Images/Videos of Children, one count of Indecent Behavior with Juveniles, and one count of Extortion for allegedly blackmailing young girls into sending explicit images of themselves. He was arrested and booked into the Sabine Parish Jail following a joint investigation by the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation (LBI) Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, and the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office. Eleventh Judicial District Judge Stephen Beasley set Miller’s bond at $6,000.

General Landry encourages anyone with further information on Miller or his potential victims to please call the LBI at 800-256-4506 and the Sabine Sheriff’s Office at 318-590-9475 or 318-256-9241. Callers do not have to give their names.
