Bogalusa man gets 40 years for sexual battery of 5-year-old

Press Release from District Attorney Warren Montgomery:

FRANKLINTON—District Attorney Warren Montgomery announced that Frederick C. Mangrum, 61, of Bogalusa, was sentenced Wednesday (Sept. 18) by District Judge William Burris to 40 years in prison for sexual battery of a victim under 13.

Mangrum, who had rejected a 10-year plea offer, was convicted of the crime by a Washington Parish jury on July 11. He was found guilty of committing sexual battery on a 5-year-old girl in 2016. The defendant removed all the child’s clothes and then touched her inappropriately.

The Bogalusa Police Department investigated the case with assistance from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Children’s Advocacy Center in Belton, Texas, and McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple, Texas.

Assistant District Attorneys Iain A. Dover and Holly McGinness prosecuted the case.
