A former employee at Boys Village in Lake Charles has been arrested again, accused of having sex with another child.

Ivella Braxton, 31, was arrested back in April after a boy who ran away from Boys Village was found and told police he had sex with her. The boy also said he met up with Braxton after he escaped. She was booked April 2 and booked with four counts felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, malfeasance in office and accessory after the fact.

Last week, detectives received information that Braxton allegedly had sex with a 14-year-old boy at Boys Village in February. Another warrant was issued for her on new charges of carnal knowledge of a juvenile and malfeasance in office. She was booked on that warrant yesterday. Her bond is set at $400,000.

CPSO Detective Larry Cormier is the lead investigator on this case.
