HAHNVILLE — Two men were arrested last week on charges relating to improper conduct with juveniles, according to St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office arrest reports.

Brandon Lee Dent, 21, of 210 Trailsway Drive, Hahnville, was arrested on June 29 and booked with three counts of molestation of a juvenile. The report said on three separate occasions, Dent was allegedly involved in inappropriate sexual conduct with two female juveniles under the age of 12.

According to Capt. Pat Yoes, spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, Dent knew the girls, but Yoes did not say how.

Dent is still in the St. Charles Correctional Center with a bond set at $200, 000 by Judge Kirk Granier, Yoes said.

In an unrelated arrest, Kendrick Ross, 21, of 705 Killona Drive, Killona, has been booked with one count of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, after he allegedly had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old female.

According to Yoes, Ross knew he was wanted by police, and on June 24, turned himself in to the sheriff’s office. He was released the same day on a personal surety to his family.
