BATON ROUGE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The Louisiana Attorney General's office has charged an Arkansas man with the aggravated rape of a two-year-old Pineville child.

On July 18, 2012, the Louisiana Attorney General's Office charged Daniel Eugene Burris, 60, of Huntsville, Arkansas, with two counts of aggravated rape. The charges come as a result of a joint investigation with the Louisiana Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit, Madison County Sheriff's Office in Arkansas, U.S. Homeland Security Investigations and the Louisiana State Police.

Several cases against Burris have come about as a result of the initial investigation in Arkansas.

In January 2012, Burris pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Fayetteville, Arkansas to knowingly traveling in interstate commerce to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.  Additionally, on September 14, 2011, Burris was indicted by a federal grand jury in Alexandria, Louisiana for the production of child pornography.  This pending child pornography case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Louisiana.
