37-yr-old arrested for sending pornography to children on social media

BATON ROUGE, La — A 37-yr-old Baton Rouge man was arrested after allegedly sending nude photos of his privates to underaged girls on Snapchat, according to his arresting documents.

Kenneth Jerome Allen Jr. was arrested for his alleged actions between 10/20/2022 — 10/30/2022. He’s now behind bars and charged with one count of possession of pornography involving juveniles, one count of indecent behavior with juveniles and three counts of distribution of pornography involving juveniles.

The tip was reported to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) thanks to Snapchat. The NCMEC tip came into the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation Cyber Crime Unit.

Snapchat reported there was a video possibly containing child sexual material that took place in East Baton Rouge Parish.

Detectives were able to work backwards and track the IP address to Allen as well as verify his Snapchat account to his personal information.

In at least two cases, detectives say Allen presented himself as being either 16 or 19-yrs-old, when he’s actually 37. In all the cases, arresting documents claim the young girls told Allen they were under the age of 18, making them juveniles.

In one specific conversation with a young girl, Allen asked how old she was. When she responded with “minor,” Allen said, “Oh ok, I welcome all ages tho,” according to his probable cause.

Allen went on to ask the girl if she would like to see a 9-yr-old perform oral sex on him because his mom had to tutor and would not be home. In that same conversation, Allen asks the girl for inappropriate videos of her.

In another case, detectives said Allen was speaking to a girl who said she was 14-yrs-old and he responded to her, “Oh ok not bad.” After that, he allegedly sent her pictures of his private area.

Detectives said they found eight other conversations where the other parties presented themselves as being girls under the age of 18. He’s accused of sending nude pictures of himself to at least three young girls and soliciting pictures and videos from them.

Allen is now arrested and charged with five felonies.
