DEQUINCY, LA (KPLC) - A DeQuincy man was arrested Thursday morning for alleged sex crimes involving a 16-year-old girl.

70-year-old Danny Paul Burge turned himself into the Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office on Thursday morning after warrants were obtained for his arrest following an investigation into a complaint received in May from a local hospital.

The complaint was in reference to a 16-year-old female juvenile that had reported a 70-year-old man had inappropriate contact with her.

Burge has been charged with molestation of a juvenile and sexual battery. He was processed into the Beauregard Parish Jail and released on a $100,000 bond.
