BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office (EBRSO) says a 57-year-old Baton Rouge man is in custody after being accused of molesting a 10-year-old. 

EBRSO has identified the man as Daron Barnett Cain.

According to an arrest warrant, detectives say Cain was arrested Thursday, Jan. 5, several months after the alleged crime occurred on Sept. 19. 

Authorities also say this is not the first time Cain has faced allegations of sexual misconduct that involve a juvenile. The official report states, “During the investigation, it was discovered the accused was convicted on 9/21/1998 in the 19th JDC for indecent behavior of a juvenile where he received a 7-year DOC sentence.” 

Cain is currently in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of molestation of a juvenile and is required to register as a sex offender yearly.
