Lake Charles, La — On Wednesday, May 16, 2012, the Lake Charles Police Department’s Sex Offender Registration Division conducted two separate investigations concerning two subjects, who failed to register with the Lake Charles Police Department as sex offenders as required by state law. As a result of the investigations, Cpl Michael Nicosia and Cpl Jeffery Atkinson arrested the following subjects:
At approximately 6:00 AM, officers traveled to 1000 North Lakeshore Drive in Lake Charles, LA, where they located resident Michele Alonzo, 45. Once officers located Alonzo, who was convicted of three counts of crimes against nature, which carries a mandatory 15 year registration with the Lake Charles Police Department, she was arrested for second offense failure to register as a sex offender and for violation of her sex offender identification card. Alonzo’s Bond was set at $50,000.00 by Judge Clayton Davis.
On the second case, officers arrested Terrance Randall Washington, 42 from Lake Charles, LA. Washington, who was convicted in 1990 for LARS 14:42.1 Forcible Rape of a 28 year old Lake Charles woman, traveled to the office of the Lake Charles Police Department’s Sex Offender Division, where he met with officers. During the interview with Washington, officers learned that Washington provided false information about his possession of a sex offender identification card, which by law, Washington must possess on his person at all times. Officers arrested Washington for his violation of LARS 40:1321.J.1- SEX Offender ID must be carried (2nd offense), which in 2011, Washington was arrested for not having a Louisiana sex offender identification and for failure to register as a sex offender. Washington’s bond was set at $30,000.00 by Judge C. Davis.
After booking, Alonzo and Washington were released to the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center for incarceration.
