Houma man arrested for molestation of a juvenile

Houma, La. - A Houma man was arrested Wednesday after investigators say he admitted to having inappropriate sexual contact with a minor, according to Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre.

Martin Bourg, 50, was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux on one count of molestation of a juvenile. He was released after posting $25,000 bond.

On Monday, detectives launched an investigation after learning that Bourg allegedly had sexual contact with a juvenile approximately one year ago. During questioning Wednesday, Bourg allegedly admitted to his involvement in the incident and was subsequently placed under arrest.

Further details about the incident, including the victim's age and gender, are being withheld to protect the identity of the victim, the Sheriff's Office said.
