Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a Haughton man has been arrested for inappropriate sexual behavior with a juvenile family member and having hundreds of videos of child pornography.

James W. Bonacci, 69, of the 100 block of Platt Drive, was arrested late Friday after Bossier detectives discovered Bonaccihad reportedly engaged in aggravated incest with a family member when the victim was between the ages of 5 and 7 some years earlier.  During an interview Friday, the victim, now a teenager, disclosed to authorities that Bonaccihad sex with her on several occasions and that he took nude photographs of her.

Bonacci admitted to detectives to having approximately 1,000 videos of child pornography on his computer, but denied raping the family member.  After obtaining a search warrant of Bonacci’s residence, deputies seized computer equipment and cameras as they continue their investigation to determine if additional charges are needed.

Bonacci was charged with aggravated incest, aggravated rape and pornography involving a juvenile.  He was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking, and his bond is set at $780,000.
