A Leesville man has been arrested for sexual battery involving a 13-year-old female victim.

Joey Blanchard, 35, was arrested on Monday on one count of sexual battery and one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

The arrest stems from a complaint stating that Blanchard entered into a residence and exposed himself to a 13-year-old female victim.

Blanchard has since been booked into the Vernon Parish Jail and is currently being held on a $135,000 bond.

Blanchard has a previous arrest back in August by the VPSO for unauthorized entry of a dwelling.

If convicted of sexual battery, Blanchard could face from 25 years to life in prison. If he is only convicted of indecent behavior of a juvenile he could face a maximum 25 years in prison.
