Exploitation of a Child

Authorities took Michael StPierre into custody on Monday, June 8, for the exploitation of a child.

StPierre was found to have enticed a child under the age of 18 to send nude photos. It was discovered when a mother decided to go through her child’s phone and found the concerning messages.

“At this time, it is still under investigation for further charges,” explained Quitman Investigator Ryan Evans. “We are still going through the evidence and devices and getting witness statements involving the case.”

There is up to a maximum of up to 40 years of prison for the charges he has been given. As of press time on Tuesday, Judge Potuk was set to assign a bond on Wednesday, June 10.
