ST. BERNARD -- A prison inmate admitted to raping three women and committing sex crimes on three young boys in St. Bernard, according to the parish sheriff's office.
Sheriff James Pohlmann said all of the rapes happened before Hurricane Katrina.
Pohlmann said deputies have identified three women, the man's young son and the boy's half-brother as victims. They haven't been able to identify the third child.
The man was already being held in prison when he wrote a letter admitting to the crimes.
The 34-year-old man isn't being identified to protect the identity of the victims.
He faces four counts of rape and one count of sexual battery.
