The Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Louisiana Probation and Parole Office recently completed a sex offender compliance check within Acadia Parish.

In all, 29 sex offenders were checked to assure that they are complying with their requirements of their probation and/or parole.

During these checks, 24 of the 29 offenders were found to be in compliance.

Of the five who were not in compliance, two were granted an extension by the courts to complete their requirements. The remaining three offenders are being reviewed with pending charges to be filed against them. These individuals violations vary from public notifications requirements, payment of required fees and change of household notifications.

“Our office along with Probation and Parole will continue to randomly check sex offenders to assure that they are complying with their requirements of law to assure the safety of our residents” says Sheriff KP Gibson.
