Sheriff Craig Webre announced the arrest of Joe Keene (age 29), formerly of Franklin, Louisiana, on November 5. Keene had recently been living with a Thibodaux woman and her young child. On Saturday, October 31, the woman brought her child to a local hospital due to finding bruising and other superficial wounds on the child’s body. Through investigation, juvenile detectives learned Keene had allegedly inflicted the injuries to the child while the child was left under his supervision. Following the investigation, detectives obtained a warrant for Keene’s arrest. Then on Thursday, November 5, deputies made contact with Keene and he was taken into custody. Keene was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center and booked with Cruelty to a Juvenile (with Force or Violence). He was released Thursday night after posting $50,000 bond.
