NOLA is back to the top (of murder, gang rape, and child rape)


Before Katrina, New Orleans led the nation in murder and child rape. After Hurricane Katrina, large segments of their underclass were resettled in other cities. This caused huge surges in crime in the places were Katrina refugees were relocated.

However, New Orleans is surging right back to the top. Last week, one Parish issued nine indictments for aggravated rape. Three of the indictments are for child rape.

An Orleans Parish grand jury this week indicted nine people on charges of aggravated rape in three separate cases. In one case, two teenagers and a woman were each charged with two counts of aggravated rape against a 5-year-old girl and a 6-year-old. The crimes occurred between July 1 and Sept. 10 and at least two happened in the same Gert Town block, according to Christopher Bowman, spokesman for District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro.

The defendants — Anthony Dean, 17; Janice Harney, 25; and Antoine Dean, 15 — are each being held in lieu of $2 million bail.

Bowman said he could not provide further details, such as whether any of the defendants or victims were related, or whether the two children were the same in each incident. No court documents were available Friday.

Also charged were five men accused of gang-raping a 53-year-old home-health nurse in a rundown fourplex in Gert Town in late January. Brian Beasley, 22; Jermaine Rumley, 21; Darren Holmes, 20; Glenn Elliot, 17; and David Quinn, 17, were charged with aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping and armed robbery. The men remain jailed on bonds of $2.15 million apiece, according to court records.

Also charged this week was Jonathan Wilson, 27, who allegedly abducted and raped an 18-year-old high school student on Dec. 7. Wilson faces counts of aggravated rape, simple kidnapping and armed robbery, and is being held in lieu of $1.75 million bond.
