NEDERLAND ā€” We’re learning about an additional allegation against a carnival ride operator who’s in the Jefferson County Jail, accused of a sex crime against a child.

Prosecutors say he met the girl at the 2019 Heritage Festival in Nederland.

According to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office, 30-year-old Elfranco Fourie is charged with online solicitation of a minor and forcing the girl to engage in sexual conduct for an audience of one or more people.

Also, Nederland police are investigating another allegation against Fourie.
