Sulphur man arrested on sex charges

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

On March 16, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office received a complaint regarding Carroll Wright, 63, of Sulphur, sexually abusing a female on numerous occasions between 1973 and 1982. 

The victim was delayed in reporting the abuse for personal reasons but the investigation revealed Wright inappropriately touched and performed sexual acts on the female, who was 3-years-old at the time the incidents began. 

On March 25, Wright was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with 4 counts of aggravated rape; 1 count of forcible rape; and 1 count of molestation of a juvenile.

Victims of sexual crimes have 30 years after their 18th birthday to report incidents to law enforcement.

Judge Michael Canaday set his bond at $1,350,000. 

CPSO Detective Elizabeth Zaunbrecher is the lead investigator on this case.
