NEW ORLEANS (WGNO)— On Wednesday, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of a New Orleans nonprofit official.
According to JPSO, 59-year-old Stephen Sauer was arrested on December 14, on five counts of video voyeurism and one count of sexual battery.
According to JPSO, Captain Jason Rivarde said the investigation is in its infancy and is expected to take several weeks at a minimum.
