Va. man sentenced in sex abuse case

LAKE CHARLES -- A Virginia man has been sentenced on two sex abuse counts in a case first reported in 2012 at Fort Polk.
U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley said Renounte Abdul Jackson, 20, of Norfolk, Va., was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi to 27 months in prison and five years of supervised release for two counts of having abusive sexual contact with minors.
Finley said Jackson pleaded guilty in August.
"According to the evidence presented at the guilty plea, Jackson was at a party at
an unoccupied residence on the Fort Polk Military base July 18, 2012. He admitted to having sexual contact with a 13-year-old and a 14-year-old girl at different times that night. He also provided alcohol to those attending the party, including minors," Finley said in a release.
The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command conducted the investigation.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel J. McCoy prosecuted the case.
