Aggravated Incest arrest made

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

On Saturday March 9, 2013 Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s deputies were alerted that 29-year-old Jerry James McLaren, from Duson, had photographs on his phone of himself engaging in sexual conduct with a 9-year-old relative.  The mother of the child reportedly came upon the photographs while lawfully viewing McLaren’s cellular phone.  Deputies were able to view the photographs and interview the victim which supported the allegations of aggravated incest.

On Tuesday March 12, 2013 deputies located McLaren in the 400 block of Pecan Grove in Lafayette and he was taken into custody and booked at the parish jail.  Bond has not been set on this charge; the investigation continues and additional charges against McLaren are likely.
