The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office got information from three more victims against Charles L. Bergeron Sr.  Bergeron is currently incarcerated on other sex charges.

According to CPSO, a 20-year-old man said Bergeron performed oral sex on him at different times when the victim was 16-years-old. The victim also said this happened at Bergeron's house. Bergeron was charged with 25 counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile. Judge Michael Canaday set his bond at $2.5 million. 

A 23-year-old man said Bergeron gave him alchohol with Somas and Xanax before performing oral sex on him. Bergeron was charged with forcible rape and his bond was set at $750,000.

The third person to come forward was an 18-year-old man who said Bergeron performed oral sex on him numerous times when the victim was 13-years-old. The man said this took place at a Westlake cemetery and at Bergeron's house.  Bergeron was charged with 25 counts of oral sexual battery and 25 counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile.  Judge Michael Canaday set his bond on these 50 counts at $5 million.               

Bergeron was incarcerated in the Calcasieu Correctional Center on June 28th on two counts of molestation of a juvenile. His bond for those charges was set by Judge Michael Canaday at $1.3 million.

These latest arrests, added to earlier arrests dating back to 1975, add up to 16 arrests for sex crimes against children.
