As a result of the search warrant, he was arrested.

Quincy Joshua LaBauve, 31, of Biloxi, was arrested at his home Thursday by investigators with the Attorney General’s Cyber Crime Unit/Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force with assistance from the Biloxi Police Department, who is also an ICAC Task Force affiliate agency. LaBauve was charged with two counts of child exploitation. Investigators executed a search warrant following an investigation of LaBauve’s online activity. As a result of the search warrant, he was arrested.

LaBauve was booked into the Harrison County Detention Center with a $100,000 bond set by Harrison County Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain. If convicted of both counts, he faces up to 80 years in prison and $1,000,000 in fines.

As with all cases, a charge is merely an accusation, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

These cases, which are unrelated, were investigated by Jay Houston and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn, both of the Attorney General’s Cyber Crime Unit.
