(WVUE) - A St. John Parish judge is under investigation in two states for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl who is friends with his daughter.
A source with knowledge of the investigation told FOX 8 that Judge Jeff Perilloux is accused of groping the 15-year-old while she was with Perilloux's family on a trip to Destin.
State Police are also investigating claims that Perilloux touched the girl inappropriately two other times in St. John Parish.
Perilloux's attorney issued a statement to FOX 8 News saying that "Judge Perilloux is confident that in the end, he will be cleared of any wrongdoing."
The attorney goes on to say that Perilloux has not been contacted by State Police.
