Sheriff: Larose man arrested in child rape that occurred about 30 years ago


THIBODAUX, Louisiana — Authorities say an 81-year-old Larose man has been arrested in a child rape that occurred about 30 years ago.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre said in a news release that Warren Danos was booked last week with aggravated rape. He was released after posting a $5,000 bond.

Webre said a woman contacted juvenile detectives to report the rape, and they discovered Danos had sexual contact with her from 1984 to 1986. She was younger than 10 at the time.

The sheriff declined to provide further details, citing the nature of the allegations and the victim's age at the time.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Danos.
