From the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office, Lake Charles, LA – On May 1 Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Detectives began an investigation on Deputy James C. Trahan, 42, Moss Bluff, after receiving a complaint in reference to indecent behavior with a juvenile.
 
During the investigation, the victim advised detectives Trahan had been inappropriately touching her since the age of 6.
On May 2 Trahan was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile. Judge Tony Fazzio set his bond at $450,000.
Prior to being terminated by Sheriff Tony Mancuso yesterday, Trahan worked as a correctional officer at the Calcasieu Correctional Center and had been with the department for approximately 15 years.
