GONZALES, La. (AP) - A state judge has revoked the bail of a former Ascension Parish sheriff’s deputy after he was arrested for the fourth time since 2013 on counts that have included child pornography, indecent exposure and carnal knowledge of a juvenile. In each of his first three arrests, he posted bail and was released.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1BLPWKv) Judge Jessie LeBlanc ordered Tuesday that 26-year-old Todd Eric Tripp held without bail after he was arrested last week for child pornography and Internet solicitation.

LeBlanc met for about 15 minutes with Tripp’s defense attorney, Jake Lemmon, and prosecutors in closed chambers and emerged to say she had revoked Tripp’s $126,000 bail.

LeBlanc said she signed the arrest warrant for Tripp on the new counts, finding there was probable cause for his arrest.
