Lake Charles, LA –
On April 25 Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Unit detectives arrested Stoney L. Boudreaux, 33, Lake Charles, who was convicted of carnal knowledge in Lafayette Parish in 2019, after an investigation revealed he failed to comply with his sex offender registration requirements.
On April 23, 2021, Boudreaux reported to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office to complete his annual sex offender registration. During registration detectives advised Boudreaux he owed community notification fees and was given a month to pay those fees. Boudreaux failed to pay his fees by the deadline, making him in violation of his sex offender registration requirements. Detectives attempted to locate Boudreaux and after further investigation they learned he was rarely at his registered address and had not registered a new address with law enforcement, again making him in violation of his sex offender registration requirements. After speaking with the homeowner at his registered address detectives were advised Boudreaux only stayed one or two days a week at the home.
Detectives continued their attempts to locate Boudreaux but were unsuccessful and on July 30 they issued a warrant in the amount of $44,000 signed by Judge Tony Fazzio for his arrest. On August 15 Boudreaux was arrested in Colorado and later released, with the agreement he would turn himself in to CPSO by September 2021.
Boudreaux failed to turn himself in to CPSO and detectives continued to attempt to locate him. During their investigation they learned he may be living at a home on 18th Street in Lake Charles. On April 25, 2022, detectives made contact with an occupant at the home who stated Boudreaux was not at the residence. After a search warrant was executed on the property, Boudreaux was located hiding in the attic. He was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with failure to register as a sex offender; failure to register as a sex offender and pay fees; and notification of a sex offender.
CPSO Detective Cory Myers is the lead investigator on this case.
Boudreaux also had an active warrant from 2021 through CPSO for theft of a motor vehicle; and theft $1,000 to $5,000 in the amount of $100,000 signed by Judge David Ritchie, along with an out of state detainer and a Parole detainer.
