Houma teen charged as adult in rape case
A Houma teen is being charged as an adult after being accused of having sexual relations with a 12-year-old girl.
Terrebonne Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said that on Monday, deputies were called to the victim’s home after her older brother informed their mother that a 17-year-old was in his sister’s bed.
The 17-year-old was reportedly an acquaintance of the brother.
Detectives conducted interviews and identified the teen as Austin Mathieu Bourg. He was questioned at the TPSO and then charged.
Due to the nature of the crime, Bourg was arrested and charged as an adult. He is booked on first-degree rape.
Bond is pending.
