A 39-year-old Lake Charles man has been charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile, authorities said.
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Kelly A. Francois, 932 Tallow Road, Lot 10, was arrested Tuesday after an one-week investigation.
“On July 24, the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint accusing Francois of having sexual contact with a female family acquaintance, beginning in 2010 when the girl was 14 years old,” Myers said in a news release on Thursday. “During further investigation, detectives recovered several letters that Francois had written to the victim over the past several months.
“The letters were sexual in nature and described inappropriate behavior that Francois was involved in with the victim.”
Myers said that when questioned by detectives, Francois confirmed the allegations involving the letters.
Judge Kent Savoie set Francois’ bond at $50,000.
Detective Trey Thomas was the lead investigator and Myers said Francois could face additional charges.
