Girl, 12, allegedly sold for sex
MONTEGUT, LA (FOX8) - A 65-year-old Montegut man has been arrested and accused of raping a 12-year-old after paying the two women who handed her over.
Terrebonne sheriff's deputies say Terry Leboeuf paid Brittany Martin, and her mother, Sheryl Lee Martin, $100 to have sex with the child.
The Courier reported the alleged rape happened Sept. 25 in Chauvin, but police say they didn't learn of it until Sept. 29.
Authorities say Leboeuf admitted having sex with the girl, but he says he didn't know she was too young to legally consent.
Brittany Martin of Chauvin also was arrested. Deputies say a warrant has been issued for Sheryl Lee Martin's arrest.
