MANDEVILLE, LA (WVUE) -

A Mandeville woman was arrested Tuesday for concealing evidence in rape that allegedly occurred at the health care facility where she worked.

Julie Henry, 55, was the Associate Program Services Director for the Beau Provence Memory Care Facility in Mandeville. She faces failure to report abuse of adults and obstruction of justice.

On Aug. 29, the Mandeville Police Department arrested 58-year-old Jerry J. Kan of Mandeville for the first-degree rape of a 78-year-old female resident at the Beau Provence. Investigators said they learned that Henry was advised of the rape by the Beau Provence staff but instructed the staff not to report the incident to police.

The Beau Provence staff turned over evidence to Henry relating to the rape, which she then destroyed, according to police.

Henry had worked at the facility since November of 2015.

Beau Provence attorney Joe Rapanti released the following statement on behalf of the facility:

"Beau Provence’s ownership and its management group are 100% behind Julie Henry. Once this investigation is finalized it will be obvious that Julie is innocent of the accusations. We will continue to be fully cooperative with all law enforcement."

Editor's Note: Raspanti also serves as a legal analyst for FOX 8 News.
