Lake Charles mother responds to child abuse allegations

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles mother accused of child abuse is speaking out. Crystal Ceasar was arrested and charged with cruelty to a juvenile. She's now telling her side of the story.

 "We got a report that your daughter was burnt by a flat iron and you hit her with a brush. I was like I would never do that to my child. I did admit that I burnt her with a flat iron but it was an accident," said Ceasar.  

Ceasar recalled it was November 2010 when she first met Calcasieu Sheriff's Detective Kathy LeBlanc. According to the mother of five the case was closed after Child Protective Services found no evidence of abuse.

Then last Thursday Ceasar was at the Sheriff's Office reporting alleged domestic abuse by her husband. Detective LeBlanc was once again on the case.

"I waited like 30 minutes in the room for Miss LeBlanc, but I didn't know who she was," said Ceasar.

After giving her statement regarding her husband Ceasar said the table was turned.

"She comes back in the room and she says Mrs. Ceasar I've been looking for you for a very long time. She said you are a hard woman to catch up with. I was confused. I was like what are you talking about. I was like what is going on," said Ceasar.

Ceasar said she was interrogated for 30 minutes before being arrested and put in jail. She was charged with cruelty to a juvenile.

"It's lies. If she was looking for me for a year... she knew where I lived. I've been living in the same place for four years. I have never come home to anyone knocking on my door and saying Mrs. Ceasar I've been looking for you," said Ceasar.

Ceasar said she's a good mother and doesn't deserve this.

"Why is the lady going to arrest me. I feel hurt and she lied on the news tonight and I was at my job and all my co-workers seen and it's a hurtful feeling for someone to lie saying it was an open investigation for a year and that's a lie. They closed it," said Ceasar.

Ceasar also said she hasn't lost custody of any of her children. She remains free on $1,000 dollars bond.

    Tonight, it should be another nice, yet warm evening. Any clouds we see today will clear away around sunset, and the rain chances go back to zero tonight. The temperatures will be fairly warm. They should not cool out of the 70s in most places. Especially near the coastline. North of I-10 has a chance to too the upper 60s, but it will still be warm. This will start off with more hot and humid conditions. There will likely be plenty of clouds every now and then.
