Held on $400K bond after alleged Luling abuse
A Luling man has been charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile and sexual battery after allegedly having inappropriate sexual contact with a 12-year-old girl.
Claude Foret, 59, of 126 Louis the First St., was arrested following the alleged incident, which reportedly occurred in Luling.
Foret was a friend of the victim’s family, according to police.
The sexual battery charge was noted as due to “forcible fondling.” The charge of indecent behavior is a felony. Both crimes would require he register as a sex offender, if convicted.
He is being held at Nelson Coleman Correctional Center on a bond of $400,000.
