Gonzales-  A deputy with the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office, arrested for child pornography, is now out of a job.

Investigators arrested 24 year-old Todd Tripp after he reportedly exchanged inappropriate text messages and pictures with a 15 year-old in another parish.

They say Tripp did meet the teen at least once at a public place in Baton Rouge.

Tripp was booked into the Ascension parish Jail on charges of indecent behavior with juveniles and possession of child pornography.  Bond has not yet been set.

Tripp, who was immediately fired, had been employed with the Sheriff's Office for 18 months and was in training to become a patrolman.
