DEIDRE CRUSE, Governmental Reporter

Plaquemine Police last week arrested a state prisoner serving time in Avoyelles Parish in the aggravated rape of a 14-year-old after the man's DNA proved to be a match, Capt. Kenneth Payne reported Monday.

They also arrested a local registered sex offender on parole on charges of simple rape and oral sexual battery in a second case, Payne said.

Sean Williamson, 38, of 24830 Butler Street, Plaquemine, remains in the Avoyelles Parish Jail and is being held as a fugitive from the City of Plaquemine under a $250,000 bond, the captain said.

The rape of the 14-year-old occurred on March 12, Payne said.  He said the victim was unable to identify her attacker, but that DNA State Police Crime Lab retrieved from her sexual assault kit it matched the suspect's DNA in the state's database.

Police arrested Jerome “Buck” Bosley, 31, of 58460 Court Street, in the rape of a Mississippi woman at his home on Sunday, Payne alleged. He said the victim accused Bosley of performing sexual battery and forcing her to have sex with him. Payne said Bosley and the woman met in an on-line chat room.

Bosley remained in the Iberville Parish Jail on Monday in lieu of a $150,000 bond, the officer said.

In other action, Payne said, Roberto Fobb, 20, of 25164 Folse Street, Plaquemine, was arrested last week and charged with carnal knowledge of a juvenile at a residence on Levy Street.

Fobb was freed on a bond of $50,000.

Also last week, the city police arrested James Lee Booker, 55, of Flatwood, Tennessee, on charges of second degree battery and aggravated assault after an altercation with another man on Bayou Road, Payne said. He said the victim was treated and released at Earl K. Long Hospital in Baton Rouge for multiple injuries from a butcher knife.

As of Monday, Booker remained in the local jail in lieu of a $10,000 bond, the captain said.

In other recent action, he said, the city police charged Rayvin Myles, 18, of Cypress Street, Plaquemine, with aggravated battery in connection with a fight on Iron Farm Road.

Payne said Myles' victim allegedly pulled a knife on him and the suspect responded by shooting the victim in the knee with a small caliber gun.

Initially, Payne said, the victim was uncooperative, but Myles was brought in for questioning several days later and confessed to the shooting.
