GIBSON, La. -- A Gibson man was arrested Monday in connection with an investigation involving a sexual relationship with a juvenile, according to Terrebonne sheriff Jerry Larpenter.

The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office says it received a complaint of a missing juvenile from the juvenile's mother saying that her 14-year-old daughter went to a sleepover at a friend's residence this weekend, and failed to return home.

Deputies began investigating the complaint and learned that the missing juvenile was last seen at Southland Mall with an adult male. Deputies located the juvenile at the residence of 29-year-old James Goins.

Both Goins and the juvenile were questioned by detectives and both admitted to being involved in a sexual relationship with each other.

Goins was arrested for one count of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, and was transported to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex where he awaits a bond hearing.
