Displaced Metairie man charged with indecent behavior
Suspect witnessed taking inappropiate photos in park
According to St. Charles Sheriff's Office spokesman Patrick Yoes, the witness said, "that something did not look right" about the scene. Sensing something inappropriate was going between the girl and Smith, the witness contacted the sheriff's office.
Following that tip from the witness, parish officials immediately launched an investigation, whereby allegations arose that Smith had inappropriately touched the child in the home.
Smith had been taken in by the Luling family due to Hurricane Katrina, although his relationship to the family is unknown.
After being charged with the crime, Smith was released after posting $12,530. If convicted of the crime, he faces 2 to 10 years and maximum fine of $10,000.
