SULPHUR, LA — A man has been arrested for failing to register as sex offender in Calcasieu Parish.
On October 4, at approximately 6:30 a.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies observed a man riding a bicycle without a headlamp on it at the intersection of W. Burton Street and N. Claiborne Street in Sulphur.
Deputies spoke with the man, identified as sex offender Matthew R. Jouett, 18, and discovered he did not possess a sex offender identification card.
