A Shreveport man who thought he was setting up a meeting with a teenage girl was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender.

According to Sheriff Steve Prator, Christopher Lee Walker, 32, set up a Facebook account using the name “John Cameron” and had conversations with a Caddo deputy he believed was a 14-year-old girl. Walker sent a photo of himself to the deputy’s assumed identity and agreed to meet “her” at a local store. Sheriff’s Detectives Jared Marshall and James Moore were waiting at the store and took Walker into custody.

Detective determined Walker was a previously convicted sex offender. It was then learned he had not completed his sex offender registration packet providing his social networking account. He was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center for failure to register as a sex offender. His bail was set at $75,000.

This is the second time since his conviction in 2001 Walker has failed to fully register as required by law.
