St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office Juvenile Detectives have arrested Jack Venton Venable Jr. (32) in connection with an investigation into illegal sexual conduct with a 16-year-old juvenile. The investigation began in February 2015, when the juvenile’s mother contacted St. Landry Parish Detectives and provided a video file from a cell phone which depicted graphic sexual conduct.
Jack Venable Jr. was arrested on May 27. He was charged with Felony Carnal Knowledge of a Juvenile and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Juvenile. He is currently held on a $20,000 dollar bond, awaiting trial. His charges carry a potential sentence of ten years in jail at hard labor. Details of his apprehension are withheld.
Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz stated… “Our detectives carefully investigated the allegations against Venable and probable cause for his arrest was presented to a 27th Judicial Judge. A warrant was issued for his arrest on April 2 2015. The suspect was apprehended in Dallas Texas and subsequently extradited to our jail. Jack Venable Jr. will have his day in court. The case against him is solid and we expect that his prosecution will move forward accordingly.”
