CPSO CAP Unit Arrests Man for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

On July 18, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Compliance and Awareness Program Unit (CAP) arrested convicted sex offender Roderic L. Duplechin, 49, 1001 N. Lakeshore Drive, # 202, Lake Charles, and charged him with failure to register as a sex offender after an investigation revealed he failed to comply with his three month in-person registration as required by law for all registered sex offenders.

Duplechin, who was convicted of molestation of a juvenile and sexual battery in Calcasieu Parish in December 2007, was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center.   

Judge Clayton Davis set his bond at $50,000.

CPSO Detective Allison Toups is the lead investigator on this case.
