PARISH MAN ARRESTED FOR CRIMES AGAINST JUVENILES

PARISH MAN ARRESTED FOR CRIMES AGAINST JUVENILES

 

On June 26, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detective Demmie Rice arrested Charles Michael Folse, 32, on multiple charges of sexual offenses against juveniles. The arrest involved a joint investigation with St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives who are expected to charge Folse with similar offenses there.

 

Folse remains in the Washington Parish Jail charged with four counts of aggravated crime against nature, two counts of indecent behavior with juveniles, sexual battery and two counts of failure to appear in court. No bond has been set at this time.

 

Folse has one previous stay in the Washington Parish Jail. In October 2006, he was jailed for reckless operation of a motor vehicle and possession of drug paraphernalia.

 

“Words are inadequate to express my emotions and depth of concern for the affected juveniles and their families,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “Detective Rice handled this very sensitive matter with professionalism and dignity and I appreciate all she does to help protect families and children in our parish.”
