Belle Chasse, La. - A Belle Chasse dad is behind bars for coercing his 16-year-old daughter to have sexual intercourse with him for the past year, according to the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office.

Police say last Friday, officers responded to an incest complaint at the home of the victim. Investigators learned that the 37 year-old father had been having sex with his 16-year-old daughter for the past year.

When deputies arrived, it was discovered the father left on foot prior to their arrival and he was reported to be intoxicated.

A short time later, the father was located and placed under arrest for appearing in an intoxicated condition, as well as an outstanding bench warrant from the Plaquemines Parish.

Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Bureau responded to the scene.

The sexual acts occurred during the past year at their Belle Chasse residence, with the most recent occurrence being on Thursday, March 28, 2013.
