HOUMA, LA (WVUE) -

Houma Police say the 16-year-old victim filed the complaint Monday about the sexual abuse that started about six years ago. According to a press release, the victim was forced to perform oral sex on Derek Jones when she was 10 years old. 

Officers arrested 41-year-old Jones yesterday for aggravated rape. He was booked at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex. 

In a three-year span, the sexual abuse allegedly happened at a home on the east side of Houma, as well as other locations.

    When stuffing soft-shell crabs, I always look for the females of the species first. They not only have that wonderful flavor, but they are usually full of the rich roe that was made famous in she-crab soup. You can always tell the females prior to cooking. They’re the ones with their fingernails painted red. If you don’t believe me, look for yourself next time.
