LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — A Louisiana sheriff’s deputy has been fired after his arrest on a charge of indecent behavior with a juvenile.
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office says bond has been set at $450,000 for 42-year-old James Trahan of Moss Bluff.
A news release says he was arrested and fired Sunday, a day after detectives received a complaint alleging that Trahan had been inappropriately touching a girl since she was 6 years old.
The statement says he was a guard at the Calcasieu Correctional Center and had been with the department for about 15 years.
It was not clear whether he has an attorney who could speak for him.
