Man allegedly raped child after meeting her through social media
BATON ROUGE - A man is facing rape charges after a child was found in his bed over the weekend.
According to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, 20-year-old Jacob Parker was booked for first-degree rape after deputies found the child who was younger than 13-years-old at his home.
Once she was found, the girl told investigators Parker picked her up from her home after the two met on social media. Parker himself later admitted to deputies that he had the victim perform sexual acts on him while at his house.
Parker was taken into custody Sunday and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
