Parish Man Arrested For Aggravated Rape

Eddie McBeth, 60, a resident of Highway 62 in the Pine area, was arrested by Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives on November 4.  McBeth is charged with Aggravated Rape and being a Convicted Felon In Possession Of A Firearm.

 The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office received a report of the sexual assault on a developmentally disabled person and conducted an investigation into the allegations.  The investigation revealed that the assault did occur and a warrant was obtained for McBeth’s arrest.  Due to the sensitive nature of the crime, additional details will not be released.

 McBeth was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail where he is being held with his bond set at $350,000.

 Sheriff Randy Seal commented on the arrest.  “All crimes are bad, but this type crime is particularly despicable. Persons who prey on anyone, especially those with special needs, deserve only one outcome, and that is jail.  I congratulate our detectives for making this arrest.”
