As of April 2012, the District Attorney's Office rejected the case and no charges were filed

 


 

The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On February 2, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office received a complaint from school officials in reference to an 8-year-old girl being dragged by her arm out of the school by Yolanda C. Geyen, 45, a family member of the child.  School officials also reported witnessing Geyen strike the 8-year-old girl in the face with her hand, causing the child's nose to bleed.

When questioned by CPSO detectives, Geyen confirmed to dragging the girl out of the school by the arm and striking her girl in the face.  Geyen also advised detectives that she had used a black leather belt to whip the girl on multiple occasions, causing numerous bruises to her body.

Geyen was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with two counts of cruelty to a juvenile. 

The child was removed from the home by the Department of Children & Family Services and placed with family members.            

On February 3, Geyen was released on a $2,000 bond set by Judge Wilford Carter.

CPSO Detective Jerry Childress is the lead investigator on this case.
