According to reports, 57-year-old Noel Noreiga was charged with first-degree rape on February 27th following the alleged abuse of a teen girl that had been ongoing since 2019.
The victim had informed investigators that Noreiga had began sexually assaulting her when she was 12-years-old back in 2019, and that the her and Noriega had known each other prior to the alleged sexual assaults.
Noriega had allegedly forced himself on the young girl on an unspecified number of occasions, which the victim alleged that Noriega wouldn’t wear protection during the unwanted intercourse.
It wasn’t until the victim had realized that she was 34-weeks pregnant that she’d informed her parents of the alleged, ongoing abuse – which then resulted in authorities getting involved.
Bail for the suspect has been set at $500,000 as of this writing.
This is a developing investigation.

According to reports, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested 41-year-old Cleto Montoya Rodas under charges of first-degree rape and sexual battery on January 19th.
Authorities allege that Rodas had sexually abused and raped an 11-year-old girl resulting in the victim becoming pregnant.
The suspect was said to have denied having ever vaginally penetrated the victim but did allegedly admit to engaging in acts of sexual abuse with her using his mouth and hands. One of the alleged incidents in question was said to have occurred at a Walmart located on Veterans Memorial Blvd in Metairie.
Law enforcement became aware of the alleged assaults after the victim had produced a positive pregnancy test.
The victim’s mother had reportedly confronted Rodas, as the suspect is apparently familiar with the victim’s family, and he had confessed to some of his alleged inappropriate contact with the minor to the mother.
Authorities say that the victim had told investigators that the suspect had raped her multiple times throughout December of 2020.
Jefferson Parish Assistant District Attorney Tonia William conveyed the details from the criminal complaints against Rodas to Criminal Commissioner Paul Schneider during a bond hearing on January 22nd.
As such, Criminal Commissioner Schneider set Rodas’ bond at $550,000 and also issued an order of protection that bars him from coming into contact with the victim until the case is adjudicated.
The suspect is reportedly still being held at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center located in Gretna.
According to Louisiana state law, a conviction of first-degree rape can result in a life sentence in prison. However, if the victim is under the age of 13 years old, then the district attorney can “seek a capital verdict” and the death penalty could even be implemented.
This is a developing investigation. Please follow Law Enforcement Today as we gather further insight into this matter.
Surprisingly, this is not the first instance of a criminal investigation revolving around an 11-year-old girl being allegedly impregnated by an adult male in Louisiana.

Back on October 19th of 2020, 34-year-old Wendell Sanchez was arrested in Gonzales, Louisiana under charges of first-degree rape, resisting an officer, property damage, criminal trespassing and other various offenses.
According to the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement was tipped off to Sanchez after doctors had alerted authorities of an 11-year-old girl who went to an emergency room on October 18th complaining of abdominal pain.
As it turned out, that abdominal pain was a result of the victim being pregnant – and Sanchez was the man who allegedly took her to the hospital emergency room that day.
When deputies had first responded to the hospital where the young girl was being treated, Sanchez was said to have fled the area which prompted a brief pursuit.
Sanchez allegedly ditched his vehicle at some point during the pursuit and fled on foot to an apartment complex where deputies along with officers from the Gonzales Police Department found the suspect hiding in a patio area nearby.
The suspect was later booked into the Ascension Parish jail and his bond was set at $540,000.
