49-year-old Lorrie A. Anderson of Lafayette and 27-year-old Katherine Sue Vidrine of Carencro were indicted Thursday on child sex trafficking charges stemming from separate police investigations in June and July that led to their arrests.

According to La. State Police Trpr. Stephen Hammons, detectives conducted a two-week investigation into Anderson on a tip that she allegedly engaged in “sexual activity with more than one child relative.” Hammons said Anderson brought the two children, both under the age of 16, to a location within Lafayette Parish “for the purpose of financial gain through child sexual acts.” Both children are now in a safe environment, Hammons said.

La. State Police say Vidrine allegedly used a child under the age of 12 to engage in sexual acts for money. Detectives say the alleged sexual acts happened about 4 years ago at locations throughout Lafayette parish. Detectives say they learned that Vidrine was present during some of the sexual acts.

According to the Advocate (http://bit.ly/18FlA3s), Anderson was indicted on two counts of child sex trafficking and two counts of aggravated rape involving a boy and a girl, both under 18, and two counts of aggravated incest against the same two juveniles. Vidrine was charged with one count of child sex trafficking.

It was unclear whether Anderson and Vidrine have attorneys.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of child sexual acts you are urged to call State Police at 337-262-3341 or your local law enforcement agency.
