Lake Charles, LA –
On January 19 Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives received a complaint in reference to Brandon J. Savoy, 26, 712 Magnolia Street, Westlake, having inappropriate sexual contact with a child under the age of 13.
During the investigation the victim advised detectives the incident occurred at Savoy’s residence. It was also learned Savoy, who was babysitting the victim along with two other children, also under the ages of 13, provided them with marijuana and allowed them to smoke.
