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.

    Rain chances increasing the next few daysRain chances increasing the next few days

    Tonight, skies will be cloudy but we will have a very little chance for rain. It will be slightly warmer overnight. Winds are still blowing out of the south, and that has slightly increased our humidity, and will therefore prevent temperatures from falling tonight. Most of Southwest Louisiana will cool down to the mid 40s, while a couple places may reach the upper 30s. Early Friday morning could have a few light showers near the coast. There is a 20% chance we see some rain.
