NEW ORLEANS, LA (WDSU) — A grand jury has indicted a former Orleans Parish sheriff’s deputy.
Dejuan Thomas was arrested in September and charged with aggravated rape, second-degree kidnapping and sexual malfeasance in office after a complaint from an inmate.
The Sheriff’s Office fired him after the initial arrest and he bonded out of jail two days later.
Thomas did not show up for his February court date and deputies arrested him again on Tuesday in Kenner.
