Son of Tiki Tubing owner arrested, allegedly tried to meet up with child for sex
VIDALIA - The son of an arrested Livingston Parish business owner was booked on charges alleging he tried to meet up with a child for sex.
On Sept. 11, The Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office says it opened an investigation into 39-year-old Earl Curtis Achord III after he initiated sexual conversations with a juvenile online.
Over the course of one week, Achord allegedly sent the minor multiple explicit photos and planned to meet them at a motel to have sex and do drugs together.
The sheriff's office said Achord was arrested this past weekend for indecent behavior with juveniles and computer-aided solicitation of a minor. He also faces contractor fraud charges out of Lafourche Parish.
Sources told WBRZ that Achord is the biological son of Tiki Tubing co-owner Patricia Fore, who was arrested for sexual battery earlier this year following an alleged assault in 2019.
Her arrest came just days after her husband, John Fore, was taken into custody for sex crimes against a juvenile. Following their repeated run-ins with the law, their shared business suddenly closed its doors over the summer.
