District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that Amos A. Beliew (36) of Bogalusa, pleaded guilty Monday (February 26, 2018) to two counts of sexual battery and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. District Judge Alan Zaunbrecher sentenced Beliew to 10 years.
In November 2015, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office received a report from a high school that a student had disclosed that Beliew sexually abused her. An investigation revealed that Beliew had touched the victim in her private area on three different occasions. The investigation also discovered a second victim, who disclosed that Beliew also had touched her in a sexual manner twice.
When probation officers did a home visit during the investigation, they found him in possession of a .22-caliber rifle.
Det. Demi Rice of the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office investigated the case.
