MORGAN CITY, LA (WAFB) - Authorities said a woman has been arrested on accessory charges related to the rape of a teen girl.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office reported Medina Billiot, 46, of Morgan City, was arrested Tuesday afternoon. She is accused of being in contact with a wanted suspect on the run from detectives.

Officials said Billiot turned herself in on a warrant for accessory after the fact to aggravated rape and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling. She was booked into the parish jail and later released on a $5,000 bond.

Atlas White, 22, of Morgan City, was arrested in April after a 16-year-old girl reported a man got into her Amelia home without permission, beat her and raped her. White was later identified as a suspect and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

According to investigators, Billiot was aware of the warrant for White's arrest when she communicated with him.

Deputies reported US marshals caught up with White in New Iberia and took him into custody.
