Lake Charles, LA –
On October 4 the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office received a complaint regarding a man possibly having inappropriate sexual contact with a 14 year old girl. On October 15 detectives interviewed the complainant who advised that sometime in July she observed a male wearing only boxer shorts in bed with a 14 year old family member at a local hotel, but was unsure of who the male was. She told detectives she told the man to stay away from the girl and also told him she was only 14 years of age. On November 4 after further investigation detectives learned the male was Jeffery J.
