High school volunteer accused of sex crimes with student
PORT ALLEN- A Louisiana high school volunteer has been accused of having sex with a 15-year-old student.
News outlets cite a West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Department release that says 30-year-old Donald Barbier has been charged with one count of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile and five counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile. The release says Barbier is an athletics volunteer at Port Allen High, but the school superintendent, Wes Watts, says Barbier was never a formal volunteer or paid employee.
The department release says Barbier and the minor communicated through social media and "engaged in inappropriate behavior" multiple times.
