CENTERVILLE, LA (WAFB) -

A New Iberia, LA man has been arrested and charged with five counts of oral sexual battery and six counts of forcible rape after allegations that he had sexual contact with a 6-year-old and a 12-year-old.

During the investigation by the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office, the detective determined that 63-year-old Sidney Istre had sexual contact with the 6-year-old on multiple occasions between 2001 and 2003.

The detective also learned about an incident in 2003 that involved a child who was 12-years-old at the time.

Istre is a registered sex offender, convicted in 2005 of indecent behavior with juveniles.

Reports say Istre was in custody in Iberia Parish and was brought to the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center in Centerville, LA. There is no information on why he was incarcerated in Iberia Parish.

No bond has been set.
