Plaquemines Parish deputy arrested on sexual battery charges

Updated:

Belle Chasse, La.- A woman who was arrested in Plaquemines Parish says a Plaquemines deputy sexually assaulted her.

Deputy Elijah Gary has been booked with sexual battery and malfeasance in office.

In November, the criminal investigations bureau took on a complaint that Gary sexually assaulted a woman while he was processing her as a prisoner.

Investigators have concluded there's enough evidence to arrest Gary.

The deputy, who has been with the sheriff's office since 2007, is being held on a 50 thousand dollar bond.
