State Penitentiary assistant warden charged with rape

ANGOLA, La. (AP) — Authorities say an assistant warden at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola has been arrested on a count of second-degree rape.

The Advocate reports ( ) that 34-year-old Barrett Boeker was arrested Tuesday.

District Attorney Sam D’Aquilla said the alleged attack is believed to have occurred at Boeker’s home, which is inside the prison gates in a small community where some of the state penitentiary employees live.

The West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office has released few details, but said in a statement that Boeker turned himself in on Tuesday, the same day the warrant was issued for his arrest.

The rape is alleged to have occurred on Nov. 30.
