The Diocese of Lafayette has released the following statement in regards to a second victim alleging inappropriate sexual contact with Robie Robichaux:
“Following Bishop J. Douglas Deshotel’s call for other victims to come forward, a second adult woman has contacted the Diocese of Lafayette, alleging inappropriate sexual contact with Robie Robichaux. The alleged victim indicated that she is unsure whether or not this contact began occurring before or after she became an adult. The Diocese became aware of the allegations when the woman reached out to us on Friday, October 12, 2018. The woman claims the contact occurred during the approximate time period of 1975-1985. Bishop Deshotel is once again urging anyone with knowledge of sex abuse of a minor to come forward to authorities and to the Diocese of Lafayette.”
