Mandeville man pleads guilty to molesting two girls

MANDEVILLE, LA (WVUE) - A Mandeville man has pleaded guilty to molesting two girls, according to a report from the district attorney's office.

Adam Parenti, 44, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of molestation of a juvenile and two related sex offenses.

Parenti was sentenced to 25 years in prison, and he has to register as a sex offender for life.

According to a news release issued by the district attorney, one of the victims was 12-years-old. Parenti began assaulting her in 2012, according to the report.

The DA said the sexual abuse included buying her sex toys, forcing her to use them in his presence, and eventually using them on her.

Parenti also molested a second 15-year-old victim in a similar way between May and December of 2013, according to the report. Parenti also forced the children to ingest narcotics and drink alcohol.

Assistant District Attorney Blair Alford prosecuted the case.
