A New Iberia man is behind bars after being arrested Monday morning for sexual battery and rape. Police arrested 63-year-old Sidney Istre of New Iberia after officials say they received a complaint of oral sexual battery.

Police later determined Istre had sexual contact with a male juvenile on multiple occasions between 2001 and 2003 and another male juvenile in 2003.

Istre does have a history of sexually deviant behavior. He is already a registered sex offender after being convicted in 2005 of indecent behavior with a juvenile. Istre is being charged with five counts of oral sexual battery and six counts of forcible rape.

He is currently being held in the St. Mary parish law enforcement center in Centerville without bond.
