Ronnie Hobbs, a 53-year-old Ferriday, Louisiana man was jailed Friday after he allegedly watched cartoon pornography on a laptop while sitting in a McDonald’s “PlayPlace”.
According to the Natchez Police Department, Hobbs was at the play area with two children, ages 4 and 5, when a police officer standing outside looked through the window and saw him viewing cartoon-themed pornographic images.
The officer stated that anyone who was in the parking lot or the drive-thru could have been exposed to the images as well. One of the children even walked up to Hobbs and began talking to him while looking at the images on his computer screen.
Investigators say when the officer confronted Hobbs, he immediately logged off of his computer. Hobbs then admitted that he was addicted to pornography, and had been for “several months.” His relationship to the children he was with was not disclosed. They were released to Hobb’s mother-in-law.
Hobbs was booked into the Natchez City Jail and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and publicly displaying sexually oriented material. He was released after posting $1,400 bond.
