Who Got Busted?

Henry Samuel Bates

A former school resource officer for the Broussard Police Department pleaded guilty to multiple counts of molesting a juvenile.

Henry Bates, 30, entered his plea today in Lafayette just moments before his trial was set to begin. He faced four counts of molestation of a juvenile and oral sexual battery.

The victim was a 14-year-old who attended a middle school at the time of the incidents.

The incidents occurred between July 2010 and November 2010, Assistant District Attorney William Babin said.

Broussard police Chief Brannon Decou said the crimes were an embarrassment for the department, even though none of them took place while Bates was on duty.

“It was a black eye on law enforcement,” Decou said. “But once we found out about it, it was investigated thoroughly.

“We made sure the integrity of the agency was taken care of.”

Bates had been with the department since 2006. He was fired in February 2011 after the allegations surfaced.

Bates faces a minimum of five years in prison. A sentencing date was not immediately known.
