CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - A Lake Charles man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison on one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Tarver entered an Alford Plea on Aug. 27 in the case. The plea doesn't require a defendant to admit the act, but admits that the prosecution could likely prove the charge.
