Man accused of molesting 6-year-old girl

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A man previously arrested a few years ago on a sexual assault charge involving a young girl is now accused of molesting a different child.

Court documents show Jerry Veal, 30, of Baton Rouge, was arrested Tuesday for allegedly touching a 6-year-old girl inappropriately in February.

He is charged with molestation of a juvenile and indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Bond has not been set.

Veal was arrested in January 2015 on a charge of aggravated rape. The victim in that case was a 10-year-old girl.

He is scheduled for a hearing on May 23 in connection with the 2015 arrest.
