Gerritsen Sex Crime Trial Set For June 11

Roy Gerritsen

And now the moment we’ve all been waiting for!

As you know, Roy Gerritsen had a day in court yesterday. The result: May 16th has been set for a status conference, and June 11 has been set for trial. A status conference is when Roy’s attorney and the Bossier Parish District Attorney meet. If any deal is made, that will be where it happens.

Roy, the former GM of Red River Radio, was arrested last October in a sting operation accusing him of soliciting sex from a juvenile over the Internet. He faces charges of computer-aided solicitation of a minor and attempted carnal knowledge of a juvenile. Bossier City police said Gerritsen arranged to meet who he thought was a 14-year-old girl for sex but who was actually a police officer posing as the girl. He was arrested when he arrived at a pre-determined location in Bossier City.

Gerritsen’s docket numbers in Bossier Parish District Court are C149466, attempted carnal knowledge of a juvenile, and C149467, computer aided solicitation of a minor. If convicted, he faces a maximum 15-year sentence and $12,500 fine, according to reports.

Was he found guilty?

His last day at WPSX-FM (Penn State Public Radio, now WPSU-FM) was when he was escorted out the door by 3 police officers, handcuffed.

Nobody knew why he was arrested...
