Johnnie Butler Allegations

Johnnie Butler Arrested. “Johnnie Butler, 41, was listed in East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s records Thursday — two days after WBRZ aired allegations raised by the victim’s father. Until then, the parish school system had only placed Butler on paid leave. The sheriff’s department, where Butler worked as a reserve deputy, said it pulled Butler’s enforcement credentials last week after learning of the accusation. The local school system fired Butler from his $49,000-a-year job on Wednesday. Butler is accused of third-degree rape and of having sex with a student. Under the law, educators cannot have sexual intercourse with students between the ages of 17 and 21 if there’s a greater-than-four-year age difference between the two.” [MORE]
