BAKER, LA — Baker Police arrested a woman wanted for molesting a juvenile boy at group home. Detectives arrested Cynthia Haynes, 43, of Davenport Avenue, who was wanted on five counts of Molestation to a Juvenile.
Haynes is accused of making sexual contact with a juvenile that she supervised back in 2011 while working as a staff member of the Drusilla's Place boys group home, located on Plank Road in Baker.
This matter was reported to Baker Police by the Louisiana Office of Juvenile Justice who discovered that Haynes was behaving inappropriately with a juvenile resident. In the investigation that followed, detectives learned that Haynes made sexual contact with the juvenile at least five times throughout the course of several months in 2011.
The juvenile victim, whose name can not be released due to his age, has been removed from the facility.
Haynes had been terminated from employment at the group home, prior to the arrest.
