A DeQuincy man, Jason C. Thibodeaux, 18, of 102 Coffee Street, is charged with ten counts for carnal knowledge of a juvenile. Detectives with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Sex Crimes division stated they arrested Thibodeaux on Friday, August 2, after learning he had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl.

According to a media release from Kim Myers, the victim told investigators her and Thibodeaux, who was her boyfriend, had sexual intercourse on numerous occasions between July and August.

According to state law, this case meets the requirements of a misdemeanor charge due to the ages of the suspect and victim; Thibodeaux is being charged with felony charges due to his prior sex offender conviction.

Detectives weren't successful in making contact with Thibodeaux, but a signed arrest warrant was issued on August 2, by Judge Robert Wyatt for $100,000. He was located the same day and arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with ten counts of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.
