KENNER, La. – A routine traffic stop resulted in the arrest of a 26-year-old man for having sex with a 14-year-old girl and on narcotics charges.
According to Kenner Police Department Chief Steve Caraway, Brian Sandoval, 26, and the 14-year-old were pulled over due to an expired brake tag. The officer noticed several used condoms that were “spread about the floor of the vehicle,” Caraway said.
Caraway said Sandoval and the girl had developed a year-long relationship with each other on a social networking site. The girl told police she and Sandoval had consensual sex, and Sandoval admitted to knowing the girl’s age. The girl had run away from home.
Less than a gram of marijuana was found on Sandoval as well.
Sandoval was booked with felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He has posted a $11,000 bond.
