JONESVILLE, La. (AP) - Seven adults have been arrested in Catahoula Parish for the alleged sexual abuse of a teenage victim.

Catahoula Parish Sheriff James Kelly tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1tlXUd5) his office received information last week about the possible sexual abuse of a juvenile younger than 16.

After investigating, Kelly says detectives determined that “a series of incidents” involving the teenage victim had happened at a number of home in the Jonesville and Larto Lake areas.

Kelly says seven suspects have been arrested in the last week in connection with the alleged crimes.

He says some of the suspects have confessed, and he expects more arrests to follow.

He says the charges range from contributing to the delinquency of a minor to resisting an officer by flight.
