Teen accused of taping sex with 14-year-old

A 17-year-old boy accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl, taping it with his cellphone and posting the video to Facebook has been arrested.

Police arrested Raheem J. Lemieux, 2618 North Blvd., Apt. 4, Baton Rouge, and booked him into Parish Prison on counts of pornography involving juveniles and indecent behavior with juveniles, prison records show.

Lemieux went to the girl’s house on either June 6 or June 7 between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., and asked her to have sex with him, the affidavit warrant says.

After he posted the video to Facebook, someone saw it and called the victim’s mother, the warrant says.

Tax preparers accused of filing false returns

Two tax preparers for Quick Tax Services accused of filing false tax returns that cost the state more than $100,000 have been arrested.

Ebony C. Martin, 33, 17424 Airline Highway, Prairieville, and Shantel Banks, 32, 8441 Betty Smothers Ave., Baton Rouge, were booked into East Baton Rouge Prison on Monday and Tuesday, respectively, on counts of theft, filing or maintaining false public records, computer fraud and criminal penalty for tax evasion, prison records show.

Justice Department Investigator Danny McAllister wrote in arrest warrants that the women included false business and fake business loan losses when filling out federal 1040 tax returns for the 2012 filing year.

Martin and Banks would get personal information from people who did not own a business and file business tax returns, the warrants say.

Their clients admitted to getting a higher refund than usual and each would be required to pay back the money, the warrants say.

Martin did not have a tax preparer ID number and would file under Banks’ number, the warrants say.
