Jerry Dwight Wright, 24, 2810 Monroe St. Apt. B, Alexandria, was arrested Wednesday afternoon on a warrant that charged him with carnal knowledge of a juvenile, and molestation of a juvenile, according to the Alexandria Police Department.
Wright is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl who lives across the street from him, the police report shows.
The police report indicates the girl’s mother notified police after learning from her cousin’s daughter that Wright allegedly had sex with her daughter at his house. When police confronted Wright, he began “crying and yelling uncontrollably and had to be told to calm down several times.”
Wright told police he and the girl never had sexual intercourse. However, he allegedly admitted to kissing and touching the teen and also exchanging text messages that contained explicit language. The girl allegedly told officers the sex was consensual.
Wright was booked into the Rapides Parish Jail.
