On July 6, 2014, deputies responded to a local hospital in reference to a report of criminal sexual conduct that occurred in the Pineville area involving a juvenile female. During the investigation, Detectives developed a suspect, identified as Christopher Shawn McGrew, 41 of Pineville, LA. McGrew was arrested on July 7th.
During the follow up investigation conducted by the Cyber Crimes Unit of the RPSO Detectives, more evidence was uncovered which lead to more warrants being obtained. On July 10, 2014, McGrew was charged with an additional 3 counts of Aggravated Rape, 15 counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles and 1 count of Computer Aided Solicitation of a Minor.
Since that investigation, Detectives with the Cyber Crimes Unit have discovered more evidence in the criminal sexual conduct case on McGrew.
