St. Landry man charged with indecent behavior


An Opelousas man has been charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile. Avery Payne is being held at the St. Landry Parish Jail with no bond at this time.

St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office Spokesperson Captain Megan Vizena stated, "We received complaint that a student confided in her teacher regarding Avery Payne, a friend of  the family, touching her inappropriately. Our juvenile detectives immediately conducted an investigation. After  speaking to Payne, he admitted to touching the juvenile on more than one occasion."

"Sexual abuse is definitely a problem for our children. Recognizing it, responding appropriately and knowing the right resources can make all the difference for that child and their families. If you suspect that a juvenile is being  abusing in any kind of way, we urge you to call our office," Vizena added.
