According to Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, “On July 13, 2020, a parent of a local juvenile came to the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office to make a molestation complaint against Jeremiah Alexander.”

The parent met with the detectives and stated that while the juvenile was at a friend’s house, he fell asleep on the sofa. Jeremiah Alexander carried him to the bedroom and placed him on the bed.

Later in the day, when Jeremiah Alexander gave the juvenile his phone to play games, the juvenile saw a video of himself while he was asleep, being touched inappropriately by Alexander. The juvenile then sent the video to a family member in a text.

The detectives spoke with Jeremiah Alexander, who admitted to having the video on his phone. He was booked in at the St. Landry Parish Jail for Molestation of a Juvenile and given a bond of $5,000.
