JPSO deputy fired for indecent behavior with teen girl

Jefferson Parish deputies arrest one of their own for allegedly having sex with an underage girl.

23-year old Blake Stewart was booked with two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Deputies say Stewart was camping with friends and neighbors Friday at Yogi Bear Camp Ground in Tangipahoa Parish.

When other campers went to swim, Stewart and a 14-year-old girl stayed behind at the travel trailer.

Investigators say the girl's father discovered the two engaged in sexual behavior.

The father called police, but Stewart had already left the scene.

Deputies say the teenager told her father she had sex with Stewart on several occasions including at his home in Marrero.

An arrest warrant was issued for Stewart's arrest on Sunday. He surrendered to police that evening and was booked into jail on charges of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

He was also charged with being a fugitive from Tangipahoa Parish.
