LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office arrested a woman on Thursday, July 8 for allegedly molesting two girls while babysitting them almost ten years ago.

36-year-old Lori G. Lemasney of Lake Charles was arrested and charged with ten counts of sexual battery and ten counts of molestation of a juvenile.

Officials investigated a report from a mother regarding the molestation of her 16 and 17-year-old daughters during the summers of 2000 and 2001 when the two girls were 6 and 7 years old.

Authorities say Lemasney, a family friend of the mother who reported her, confirmed the allegations during questioning.

A judge has set Lemasney's bond at $400,000.
