By Special to the American Press

A former Moss Bluff resident has been charged with two counts of incest, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Carl W. Lewis, 61, was arrested Thursday for allegedly having sexual contact with a family member on numerous occasions, beginning in 1995 when the girl was 12 years old.

Myers said Lewis, who now lives in Gonzales, confirmed some of the allegations to detectives.

Judge Wilford Carter set Lewis' bond at $35,000.
