Man arrested on multiple charges including raping toddler, child pornography, sexual abuse of an animal

BATON ROUGE — The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested and charged a man with 50 counts of pornography involving children under 13.

Officials say Jeremiah Jamal Crosby, 25, was also charged with 100 counts of sexual abuse of an animal, three counts of first-degree rape, victim under 13, and three counts of pornography involving juveniles (production) stemming from incidents occurring from December 1, 2023, to Feb. 7, 2024.

“I applaud my agents and East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s deputies for working together every day to protect the most vulnerable in our community,” said Louisiana Attorney General Liz Murrill. “We will not turn a blind eye to heinous crimes against children.”

EBRSO opened an investigation about a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Officials say the tip contained child sexual abuse material (CSAM) of children under 13.

Arrest documents say a search warrant was executed at a residence on Industriplex Boulevard in Baton Rouge. When executing the search warrant, investigators met Crosby, and he agreed to speak to investigators regarding this investigation.

During the search, Crosby’s phone was seized as evidence. While performing an on-scene forensic analysis of the device, at least 50 videos of child pornography of juveniles under the age of 13 were found, along with at least 100 videos of bestiality, according to the arrest documents.

During the interview with Crosby, he admitted to having images/videos of child pornography and bestiality on his phone. He also admitted to raping a 3-year-old on several occasions while she was left in his care.

“I applaud the continued work of the agents on these types of cases involving children, and I appreciate the cooperation and collaboration of our law enforcement partners,” said East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Sid Gautreaux. “We will continue to seek out and apprehend child predators.”
