Professor goes to court Dec. 8
Gabriel’s arrest came after a sting operation by Kenner police. Det. Brian McGregor, a member of Kenner’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, said Gabriel is suspected of cruising online chat rooms and having sexual conversations with an undercover officer posing as a juvenile. He said Gabriel, who used the screen name “rjg_pe,” contacted the undercover officer on five separate occasions between Sept. 30 and Oct. 8, and in each occasion invited the officer to view his Web cam. Upon viewing the Web cam, McGregor said detectives were confronted with images of Gabriel exposing himself.
