Couple booked with indecent behavior with juvenile

GRETNA, LA —

GRETNA, La. (AP) — Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office deputies have arrested a Gulfport, Miss., man accused of inappropriately touching a 12-year-old girl when he was in Louisiana. Authorities also arrested his girlfriend, accusing her of ignoring his behavior.

Col. John Fortunato tells The Times-Picayune (http://bit.ly/18cpZbQ ) deputies extradited Ofeltio Mastrapa and Betty Lou Roberts, both 41, from Hancock County, Miss., on Tuesday.

Fortunato says the couple was visiting relatives overnight in Jefferson Parish on June 22 when Mastrapa allegedly climbed into bed with the victim and tried to fondle her.

Mastrapa and Roberts were booked with sexual battery and indecent behavior with a juvenile. Roberts was booked with an additional count of cruelty to a juvenile.

It was unclear whether Mastrapa and Roberts have an attorney.
