An 18-year-old man said he didn’t know the girl he was having sex with was only 13 after her family laid a beat down on him when they were caught.
Javionne Thomas has been charged with felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, reports the Associated Press.
He reportedly fled the scene after being attacked by the girl’s family, according to Monroe, Louisiana sheriff’s arrest report, which also stated that deputies responded to a call of an injured person early Sunday (September 15) morning, AP reports.
When deputies alerted Thomas that the girl was 13, which they discovered while investigating the arrest report, he denied knowing her age.
He also declined to press battery charges against the girl’s family.
Upon his release from the hospital, Thomas was booked into jail, AP reports.
According to ThePoliceReporter.com, Thomas was arrested in Ouachita Parish County. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
