BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

According to documents from the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, a Baton Rouge cheer coach has been arrested a second time after more allegations of rape surfaced this week.

Jason Paul Galjour, 36, has been arrested and charged with five counts of second degree rape.

Galjour, a cheer coach and manager at Precision Athletes in Baton Rouge and Walker, has been released from the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison after posting a $100,000 bond. He was arrested on September 9, 2015 and was released on a $50,000 bond after being charged with second degree rape in another case.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, a victim who saw a media report on Galjour's first arrest, decided she wanted to come forward about allegedly being sexually assaulted by Galjour on several occasions.

The second alleged victim says she trained with Galjour for three or four years prior to the first assault. The victim told deputies, prior to her turning 18-years-old, Galjour began making comments about her developing body, as well as touching her inappropriately during their training sessions.

During the alleged first sexual assault against the victim, the affidavit of probable cause states Galjour forced her to have oral sex and vaginal sex. 

The report also states the victim told Galjour she was a virgin and did not want to have sex with him. She was a senior in high school at the time. She told deputies he told her "I've been waiting for you to turn 18." She told deputies she was scared and froze, and was afraid Galjour would hurt her.

The next four times the victim said the sexual assaults happened were at Precision Athletes during her private lessons with Galjour. 

When the deputies asked why she did not report the alleged sexual assaults at the time and why she continued to be a student of his, she stated she wished to pursue being a college cheerleader and feared Galjour would hurt her chances of becoming one if she did not comply with his demands.

A warrant was issued for Galjour's arrest on September 14, 2015. He was arrested on September 15, 2015 and was released the same day after posting a $100,000 bond.

According to Ernie Ballard, Media Relations Director at LSU, Galjour was employed as a transient worker, as a cheer coach, off and on from July 1, 2005 until April 30, 2007.
