Second adult booked in case involving Baker runaways

One day after Baker police arrested a man accused of giving two juvenile runaways synthetic marijuana, police arrested a second man accused of having sex with one of the underage girls.

Police booked Kentrell “Trell” Hudson, 21, 6855 Silverleaf Ave., Baton Rouge, into Parish Prison Saturday on counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

Hudson had sex with a 13-year-old girl on Dec. 16, four days after the girl and a 14-year-old girl were reported missing, according to an affidavit warrant.

The sex occurred at the 5650 Jackson St. home the girls stayed at after running away, the warrant says.

On Friday, Baker police arrested Jacques M. “Mond” Johnson, 21, 4402 Clayton St., on accusations he gave the girls synthetic marijuana.

He was booked with cruelty to juveniles, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and a fugitive warrant.

The victims told police they were smoking synthetic marijuana twice a day that Johnson gave them.

Authorities located the girls on Dec. 17 after one of the girls texted her mother, asking for help because the texter had been abducted and raped.

The girl was found and taken to a hospital where she told police she made up the story about being abducted because she had been smoking tobacco and synthetic marijuana.

Later, police found the other girl at the Jackson Street home in Baton Rouge.
