BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies arrested an East Baton Rouge Parish man on suspicion of raping a 6-year-old child.

A department spokesperson said Jerry Primm, 65, is charged with aggravated rape.

Deputies said they were told by the victim's mother Primm was a friend of their family.

In 2003, authorities accused Primm of indecent behavior with juveniles. In 2005 he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of cruelty to juveniles. A judge sentenced Primm to seven years with credit for time served and suspended the remainder of his sentence, putting him on supervised probation for four years instead.

Anyone with information about this incident or others should contact EBRSO at (225) 389-5000.
