LABADIEVILLE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Robert L. Foret, 51, of 115 Ash Street, Labadieville for not registering in Assumption Parish as a sex offender. Assumption Parish Detectives followed up on a tip that a sex offender, who was registered as residing in Lafourche Parish, was residing in Labadieville, LA. at 115 Ash Street. Through subsequent questioning and investigation, detectives learned that Foret had been residing in Labadieville for weeks, during which he did not update his registration to inform law enforcement of his residency in the area. This is required by law for all convicted sex offenders changing residency.
The address where detectives located Foret would not have been approved for him to stay due to its location in close proximity to an area school. Foret was booked into the parish detention center on one count:
*Failure to Register as a Sex Offender (2nd Offense)
This was the second time he has been charged for failing to register as a sex offender.
