Deputies arrest cable guy accused of sex with juvenile
BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies in East Baton Rouge said they arrested a cable contract worker on Friday who is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old while on the job in June.
Christopher Hilton, 37 of Kentwood was booked into the parish jail on a carnal knowledge of a juvenile charge on Aug. 22.
Hilton was employed by Advantage Cable Services, a company that does contract work for Cox Communications, when the incident happened.
The juvenile told deputies that the man had conversations of a "sexual nature" while he was at the girl's home to remove equipment on June 23rd. The girl's parents were not home at the time.
The arrest report goes on to say Hilton and the 14-year-old eventually moved to the girl's bedroom where they had intercourse.
The girl informed deputies she and the 37-year-old man exchanged text messages, sometimes sexually explicit in nature, in the days after the incident, according to deputies.
Hilton was wanted by deputies after he told investigators that he would not show up for an interview concerning the girl's accusations.
Cox Communications released a statement saying the company was "shocked" and "upset" concerning the incident and will provide full cooperation with authorities. They say they maintain a policy of strict background checks for Cox Communications and contractor technicians. According to Cox, Hilton passed mandatory criminal history and sex offender registry data searches prior to his hire.
Advantage Cable Services, the contractor who directly employed the man, said he stopped coming to work before deputies came to his job to look for him.
