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.

    A group of boys are taking their love for baseball off the field and into the backyard. And no, this isn't a scene out of the 1993 classic "The Sandlot." It’s happening right here in Lake Charles.

    At the David household, there's something special going on in the backyard.

    “One day in the backyard we came out here and decided to start playing around,” said Dylan David, who started a Wiffle ball league with his friends.
