An inmate at the Ascension Parish jail in Donaldsonville has been accused of raping another inmate and a second person, being held in the August beating death of a teen, is accused of being an accomplice, Ascension Parish Sheriff's Chief Deputy Bobby Webre said.
The victim reported Thursday night that he had been raped by an inmate two different times this week, Webre said in a news release.
Tre'Anthony James, 17, has been booked with two counts of second-degree rape. James was additionally booked on simple criminal damage to property because the victim's jail-issued jump suit was damaged during the attack, Webre said.
James was being held on three counts simple burglary, illegal possession of stolen things and principal to first-degree murder, which stem from a Dec. 3, 2016 when deputies responded to an apartment complex in Gonzales after James and the other suspect shot at a tenant once the tenant attempted to stop the two from breaking into his vehicle, Webre said.
A second inmate, Kaglin Green, 17, was also booked Thursday on one count principal to second-degree rape and principal to simple criminal damage to property. Green is being held on murder counts stemming from his role in the Aug. 24 beating death of a teen behind the Mississippi River levee in Donaldsonville, Webre said.
The Sheriff's Office brought in the Louisiana State Police detectives’ bureau to serve as an independent agency to review the case.
