Aggravated Rape Case Involves Carencro Man And Juvenile
59-year-old Thomas Hargis of Carencro has been arrested and booked into the Lafayette Parish Jail for one count of aggravated rape of a juvenile.
Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s deputies say Hargis allegedly committed the crime on the child, who’s under 12-years-old, around July 30. Hargis, who lives in the 100 block of Frobea Drive, was arrested at a business in Lafayette on Saturday.
Deputies say they were able to confirm that Hargis and the juvenile victim were known to each other but could describe the relationship to protect the identity of the victim.
Hargis is expected to appear in court for an initial hearing on Tuesday August 6.
