NAPOLEONVILLE Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Tyronne Tucker, Jr., 22, of 111 Gold Street, Napoleonville, LA, in connections with a bribery case stemming from a rape dating back to August of 2017.

As a result of the rape case, Terrance Dupaty, 21, of 135 Dorseyville Lane, Belle Rose, LA, was arrested and charged with forcible rape.

Shortly thereafter, investigators received information that Dupaty had solicited assistance from Tucker to bribe the victim in the rape case to drop charges and not testify against him.
