LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A 31-year-old Lake Charles woman has been accused of letting a known sex offender around her children and withholding information that led to him becoming a youth T-ball coach, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Ashley Nicole Hess was arrested Monday on a charge of harboring or concealing a sexual offender.

"On numerous occasions, Hess allowed Raymond Daniel Lowery to be at her home while her four (young) children were present," Myers said Wednesday in a news release. "Her home is within 1,000 feet of a daycare. (Hess) was well aware both were violations of Lowery’s sex offender registration requirements."

Myers said detectives learned that in 2013, Hess intentionally withheld information and misled the staff of a local recreation facility regarding Lowery being a registered sex offender.

"Hess' actions allowed Lowery to coach and attend numerous T-ball games of her juvenile son, which is also a violation of his registration," Myers said.

Hess was released after posting a $10,000 bond.

The 26-year-old Lowery was arrested May 1 on charges of failure to register as a sex offender and unlawful presence of a sex offender.

Lowery, who was convicted of indecent behavior with a juvenile under the age of 7 in September 2009, is being held with no bond.
