Parish Man Arrested For Sexual Crimes

On January 6, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested Johnny E. Sandifer, 68, a resident of Highway 439 in Bogalusa, on two counts of aggravated crime against nature.  He remains in the Washington Parish Jail with bond set at $800,000.

 The investigation began when a victim came to the Sheriff’s Office with complaints dating back several years.  Several other persons came forward and gave witness statements which confirmed the allegations.

 Due to the very sensitive nature of the allegations and the need to protect victims and witnesses, no further information will be provided.

 Sheriff Randy Seal commented on the arrest.  “This is a tragic case and I am grateful to our detectives for handling it in such a professional manner.  Based on the circumstances of this matter, Mr. Sandifer is where he should be—in jail.”
