FARMERVILLE, La. (AP) - A Union Parish father and son have been arrested on charges of having sexual relations with family members.

Sheriff Dusty Gates tells The News Star (https://tnsne.ws/1EY2bZ8 ) that 41-year-old Steven E. Stanton and 62-year-old Norman Lee Stanton were arrested Thursday in the Haile community.

Gates says each was charged on two counts of aggravated crime against nature. He says Steven Stanton was additionally booked on a count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Steven Stanton’s bond is $160,000. His father is held without bond. It is unclear if they have attorneys.

Gates says investigators believe the sexual encounters began in 2005 and continued up until this year.

Gates says the additional charge against Steven Stanton involved a 16-year-old girl. The ages of the girls involved were 7 to 17 years.
