In early February, Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations Special Victims Unit (LSP SVU) was contacted by the Many Police Department for assistance with a complaint involving an illicit social media video containing the sexual battery of a juvenile. The video was determined to involve students at Many High School.
As a result of the investigation and information obtained, arrest warrants were issued for seven juvenile students and one 18-year-old student. The juveniles were arrested for a variety of charges consisting of some or all of the following: sexual battery, second-degree kidnapping and pornography involving juveniles. The adult student, Quacie Kerlegon, was arrest for sexual battery and second-degree kidnapping. He was booked into the Sabine Parish Detention Center.
Many Police Department and the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office assisted LSP with the investigation. The Sabine Parish School Board has been cooperative with all investigative requests.
The investigation remains active and ongoing. There is no further information available at this time.
The Louisiana State Police online reporting system is also available to the public through a convenient and secure reporting form that is submitted to the appropriate investigators. Citizens can access the form by visiting http://lsp.org/ and clicking the Suspicious Activity link.
