Indictments were issued Monday in 18th Judicial District Court against a St. Gabriel woman and Iberville Parish Sheriff's deputy who were arrested in June on charges of sex crimes against a 1-year-old.

A grand jury issued indictments against Shaedrick Jones and Iyehesa Todd on charges of rape, along with distribution of child pornography and aggravated crimes against nature.

Jones, who was arrested June 7, was arrested on one count of pornography with a juvenile, principle to first degree rape and malfeasance in office.

The case drew national attention.

Jones was terminated upon his arrest. The resume for Jones included stints with the West Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, along with police departments in White Castle and Maringouin.

St. Gabriel police arrested Jones on Friday after Iyehesa Todd, 26, informed investigators about the sexual assault.

According to reports, Jones came to her home to carry out an arrest warrant over a traffic violation.

He allegedly told Todd he would not arrest her if she would let him video the sexual act which he said was "one of his fantasies."

A GPS to Jones's unit led investigators to determine he was at Todd's house during the incident.
