A 50-year-old Slidell man has admitted he raped a 15-year-old girl.  Laron S. Bester pled guilty in court this week to two counts of forcible rape, indecent behavior with a juvenile, and sexual battery.

The St. Tammany District Attorney's office says the incidents occurred in 2014 involving a girl who was then 15-years-old. 

District Judge Raymond Childress ordered a pre-sentencing investigation before the hearing next month.

Bester's arrest comes after an alert neighbor noticed Bester loitering on a bike at the teenager’s house and called the mother. The mother called the grandmother, who went to the house and discovered that someone had escaped through a window. The teenager then revealed that Bester, a friend of the family, came to the house, took her clothes off, and began sexually assaulting her despite her pleas for him to stop. The victim also told authorities that Bester had been inappropriate on other occasions.

Bester is scheduled to go before District Judge Raymond Childress next month as part of a pre-sentencing investigation.  He faces between five and 12 years in prison.  He is scheduled to be sentenced April 27.
