Louisiana police chief indicted on child rape charges

Spearsville Police Chief Steve E. Bodine, accused of aggravated rape of a child under the age of 13, has been indicted by a Union Parish grand jury.

The News-Star reports the 64-year-old Bodine was booked late Monday afternoon into the Union Parish Detention Center. State District Court Judge Cynthia Woodard set bond at $500,000.

Union Parish Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Dusty Gates said the indictment and arrest of Bodine came after a yearlong investigation by sheriff's investigators, state police detectives and the district attorney's office.

Gates said the investigation started after a family member filed a complaint with the sheriff's office.

He said the victim was between the ages of 8 to 10 when the alleged incidents occurred.

It was unclear whether Bodine has an attorney.
