A Springhill man is one of two arrested recently on child exploitation charges, Attorney General Jeff Landry announced Wednesday in a news release.

Brandon Revelle, 25, of Springhill, is charged with one count each of distribution of sexual abuse images and/or videos of children and possession of sexual abuse images and/or videos of children.

Revelle was booked into the Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center following a joint investigation between the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation Cyber Crime Unit, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, Bossier Parish Marshal’s Office, Caddo, Bossier and Webster sheriff’s offices.

Benjamin Darouse, 39, of Baton Rouge, was the second man arrested by the Cyber Crime Unit. He’s charged with four counts of sexual abuse images and/or videos of children. He is jailed in the East Baton Parish Prison.
