CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) –The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office reports Tuesday the arrest of a 40-year-old man they say worked at a Caddo Parish high school for allegedly sexually propositioning a young girl over the telephone.

40-year-old Quenton Washington of Shreveport was arrested Monday after deputies investigated claims that Washington was trying to coax a 12-year-old girl to meet him for sex.

Deputies say Washington posed as a 15-year-old boy and talked with the girl on the phone for several months, in which, deputies say many of their conversations were sexual in nature.

Caddo deputies also say that the 12-year-old victim told them that back in February Washington allegedly asked her to meet him for sex. Authorities report that meeting never happened.

The Caddo Sheriff's Office began investigating Washington after they were contacted by the girl's family and a probation officer that intervened when the family thought the "15" and 12 year olds were getting too involved.

Washington is currently in the Caddo Correctional Center facing an indecent behavior with a juvenile charge.
