Man arrested for sex with teen

A South Lafourche man was arrested Tuesday for reportedly having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

Albert B. Dean, 22, of 144 E. 95th St. in Cut Off, has been charged with felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, a Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office report said.

Juvenile investigators received a call Tuesday from the alleged victim’s mother, claiming Dean had sex with the girl in September, the report said. The girl and her 16-year-old friend were babysitting for a cousin one Saturday night when the cousin and her husband came home late with some friends. One of the friends was Dean, the report said.

Dean reportedly stayed the night at the cousin’s house, as did the two girls, the report said. The alleged victim told police he propositioned her and her friend. Although the friend refused his advances, the girl said, she eventually gave in.

The girl told her friend of the incident the following morning, the report said.

When questioned, Dean denied having sex with the girl, but admitted kissing her and “fooling around” with her, the report said.

Audio statements were taken from Dean, the alleged victim and her friend. He was booked on the charge and taken to the Lafourche Parish jail.

He remained there this morning awaiting a bond hearing.
