David T. Sprague - Repeat Sex Offender targets 4 year old

A convicted sex offender was arrested Monday by Ouachita Parish deputies for molesting a 4-year-old child.

David T. Sprague, 25, 3219 Caples Road Lot 2, West Monroe, was charged with aggravated incest.

According to an arrest report, deputies began investigating the case in early September when an adult called to say the child's behavior indicated she may have been sexually abused.

From there, the child was taken to the Children's Advocacy Center to be questioned and reportedly told interviewers Sprague victimized her and listed at least three occasions on which abuse occurred.

On Oct. 1, the child was taken to a doctor for examination, but no evidence of abuse was found.

However, a case worker at the office said the child displayed sexual behavior and made sexually explicit comments.

On Tuesday, Sprague went to the sheriff's office and gave a recorded statement denying the abuse.

In August 2004, Sprague was charged with sexual battery and aggravated rape. He was convicted of sexual battery in 2006 and was sentenced to three years in prison.

Sprague was booked at the Ouachita Correctional Center. Bond was set at $100,000.
