Youngsville man charged in sexual assaults

Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested 28 year old Keiwaythan L Turner of Youngsville, LA in a series of sexual assaults which occurred over a 5 month period from January through May of 2011. The three female victims who are acquaintances of the suspect range in age from 13 to 16. The investigation alleges that Turner forced himself upon each victim on separate occasions and he has been charged with 5 counts of forcible rape and 1 count of indecent behavior with a juvenile. Turner is being held on $400,000.00 bond at the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center. The allegations came to light after the victims confided in a parent who reported the incidents which are said to have occurred in the Carencro and Youngsville areas in Lafayette Parish.

Turner was being held at the parish jail on unrelated charges when the investigators added the sexual assault charges.
