Louisiana sheriff’s deputy facing rape charge


CALCASIEU PARISH, La. (AP) – A sheriff’s deputy in southwest Louisiana has been fired and arrested on rape charges involving three girls ranging in age from 6 to 9.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office says 33-year-old David P. Monceaux was arrested Wednesday on multiple counts of first-degree rape and sexual battery.

A sheriff’s news release says Monceaux’s bond was set at $2.5 million.

Monceaux had been working as a correctional officer at the parish prison.

Online records for Monceaux were not available Thursday and it was unclear whether he had an attorney who could speak for him or when he will enter a plea.
