A Leesville resident was arrested June 16 on sexually related charges, said Vernon Parish Sheriff Sam Craft in a prepared statement.
Darwin A. Jeane, 46, of Jeane Chapel Road was arrested and charged with aggravated rape, oral sexual battery and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.
A female juvenile victim alleged to her mother that Jeane had behaved inappropriately with her, said Craft.
The mother then took the juvenile to Byrd Hospital, at which time law enforcement was notified.
After further investigation, law enforcement arrested Jeane and booked him into the Vernon Parish Jail with a bond of $575,000.
Jeane is currently a registered sex offender dating back to 1996; however, his exact previous offense was not listed on the parish sex offender registry (www.icrimewatch.net/index.php?AgencyID=54421), and calls to the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office were not immediately returned.
Jeane remains in the parish jail at this time.
