ALGIERS, La. -- Plaquemines Parish deputies have booked a 21-year-old Algiers man, already in jail awaiting an aggravated rape trial, on charges that he had consensual sex with a 15-year-old girl.

Dustin Richard Perez, 21, faces one count of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile. A grand jury indicted him on two counts of aggravated rape earlier this month.

Deputies say Perez allegedly had consensual sex with the victim, who Perez knew was 15 years old at the time, in late January or early February.

Perez is currently being held in Orleans Parish Prison on a $1.25 million bond.
