Former Alexandria officer booked with carnal knowledge

ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — Rapides Parish sheriff’s deputies say a former Alexandria police officer has been booked with carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

Deputies said in a news release received by The Town Talk (http://townta.lk/1EwNdKn) 38-year-old Deric Reed turned himself Thursday after a warrant had been issued for his arrest.

Reed resigned from the Alexandria Police Department in January before he was to undergo a disciplinary hearing in connection to the case.

He was released from jail on a $5,000 bond.

Police say the case began on Dec. 1, when a complaint was filed with the sheriff’s office alleging that Reed was in a relationship with a juvenile female.

Jail officials couldn’t provide the name of a defense attorney to comment on the charges.
