Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested 40-year-old Chad Morgan of Scott for allegedly molesting three male relatives over a four month period.  Deputies were alerted to the allegations when a guardian of the children ranging in age from 8 - to - 14 years old, reported the crimes to authorities.  The investigation yielded evidence that from January 2012 through April 2012 inappropriate behavior occurred between Morgan and the three children in Lafayette Parish.  Investigators have also seized computer equipment belonging to Morgan and are analyzing the data for additional evidence.  Morgan has been booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on three counts of molestation of a juvenile and is being held in lieu of a $60,000.00 bond, as the investigation continues.
