Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Tim Soignet said that during the month of March 2021 TPSO detectives began an investigation regarding two teenage females receiving indecent social media text messages.
During this investigation, detectives were able to verify the information that was sent to the females. Detectives interviewed witnesses who provided information that supported the allegations. One of the females was a victim of a sexual encounter. The suspect was identified as Jacoby Verret, age 24, of Houma. He was an acquaintance of the family.
Detectives located Verret and transported him to the Sheriff’s Office where he was questioned regarding the allegations made against him. After further investigation, Jacoby Verret was arrested for two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile and aggravated crime against nature.
Verret remains in the Terrebonne Parish Jail on a $100,000.00 bond.
This case remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call Terrebonne Parish detectives, (985)876-2500. Sheriff Soignet commends TPSO deputies and detectives for protecting the youth of our parish.
