NEW ROADS, La. (BRPROUD) – A New Roads police officer is on administrative leave after being accused of sexually assaulting three minors.
New Roads Police Chief Kevin McDonald says an investigation into the allegations is currently underway.
Text messages between one of the alleged victims and the officer- obtained by our investigative unit- show the teen detailing the alleged abuse.
“YK [You Know] what you did. I’m 17 and I was sleeping. You sexually assaulted me, I told you plenty of times that I only saw you as a brother.”
The officer responded: “The end result was I failed you, I hurt you, I don’t remember any of it, but if you say it happened, then it happened. I wish I could make things right with you.”
The teens have not filed a police report. The investigation started after the Mayor and Police Chief were made aware of the alleged abuse.
The police officer is not facing any criminal charges and NBC 33/Fox 44 is making an editorial decision not to name the officer.
