Registered sex offender arrested on rape of girl

Posted: Updated:

SLIDELL, La. (AP) - A registered sex offender released from prison a month ago is back behind bars accused of raping a 13-year-old girl.

Slidell Police say the girl claimed to have been assaulted by a person she knew as 17-year-old Daniel Jones. Investigators, however, concluded such a person did not exist.

With further investigation, police say they determined the person they actually were looking for was 23-year-old Bert McDaniel Jones. He was arrested Friday on a charge of forcible rape and booked into the city jail. Police say Jones is awaiting transport to the St. Tammany Parish jail. Bond information was not immediately available.

Jones was released Jan. 5 from prison after serving four years following a conviction of carnal knowledge of a juvenile. In that case, police say the victim was 14-years-old.
