SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – Attorney, Robert Goodman has been arrested and charged with felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

Police paid a visit to his office today (Thursday) to serve a search warrant and eventually an arrest warrant.

Goodman has been involved in some very high profile cases in Shreveport throughout the 80's and 90s.

A police report obtained by KSLA News 12 indicates that Goodman allegedly had oral sex with a sixteen year old girl.

A source close to the case tells KSLA News 12 that several other victims are expected to come forward, and that there is photographic evidence of the alleged sex acts.

The police report states the sex was consensual.

Police say that the investigation began after a person came forward.

Investigators paid a visit to Goodman's office today with a search warrant, then an arrest warrant.

Police say Goodman was surprised.

 Back in 1996 Goodman represented a coach from the Shreveport Pirates - who had filed a lawsuit against the team owners for reportedly breaking a contract.
