Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Tim Soignet announced the arrest of a Bourg man, in connection with an incident being investigated by the SVU Division.  Gerald Joseph Danos Jr, 52, was arrested for charges of Indecent behavior with a juvenile and Sexual battery, for his involvement in the investigation. 

On June 30th, 2024, the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division learned of information related to a sexually motivated incident involving a juvenile, which occurred at a residence in the 4100 block of Bayou Estates Drive, days prior.  Authorities met with the victim and a parent who provided explicit details of the sexual abuse, which occurred during a party at the residence. The victim identified Gerald Jospeh Danos Jr as the person responsible for the abuse.

SVU Detectives were called in to investigate the incident, and an in-depth investigation was completed into the allegations of sexual abuse. 

On July 8th, SVU Detectives secured arrest warrants for Danos, who was located and brought in for questioning.  At the culmination of the interview, Danos was arrested and jailed at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex, and later released on a $21,000 bond, by local judges.

Sheriff Tim Soignet would like to commend the prompt and thorough job of the TPSO Patrol Division and SVU Detectives in this incident.  Sheriff Soignet said, “These types of cases tend to be very disturbing for the public, as well as tedious for our investigators.  I have the utmost belief in our detectives, to bring a conclusion to this incident for all involved.”
