46-Year-Old Louisiana Man Arrested in Terrebonne Parish on Warrants for Alleged Sex Crimes Involving a Juvenile

Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana – A 46-year-old Louisiana man has been arrested in Terrebonne Parish on warrants for alleged sex crimes involving a juvenile.

On March 15, 2023, Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Tim Soignet reported the arrest of a suspect in connection with a sexual based investigation involving a minor being undertaken by Detectives from the Union Parish Sheriff’s Office. Johnnie Caine Jr., 46, of Houma, Louisiana, was arrested on outstanding warrants related to the investigation.

In March 2023, detectives from the Union Parish Sheriff’s Office notified the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office Special Victim’s Unit (SVU) about a Houma man being the suspect in a sexually related crime involving a minor that occurred in their jurisdiction on March 5. According to detectives, as a result of the investigation, arrest warrants for Johnnie Caine Jr. were acquired in Union Parish. Union Parish Detectives requested assistance in locating Johnnie Caine Jr. from the Special Victims Unit, which was established through research that Johnnie Caine Jr. was related to an address on Houma’s Eastside.

Caine was apprehended during a traffic stop on Grand Caillou Road soon after 1:00 pm on March 10 by SVU Detectives.
As a consequence of the traffic stop and arrest of Caine, SVU Detectives reportedly discovered numerous pieces of potential evidence within the vehicle, which were secured in connection with the investigation. Caine was questioned, and SVU Investigators were able to get a statement from him that verified his involvement in the investigation.

Johnnie Caine Jr. was arrested and booked into the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex on charges of Indecent Behavior with a Juvenile, Computer Aided Solicitation of a Minor, and traffic violations.

Caine is still being held in jail on a $100,000 bond by local judges.

Sheriff Soignet indicated that he is extremely proud of the investigative efforts of the Special Victim’s Unit in arresting this very dangerous offender. “I am very passionate about protecting the children whether our community or others and this type of behavior will not be tolerated. I am honored that we could assist the Union Parish Sheriff’s Office bring a resolution to their investigation.”
