Douglas Baney

A Thibodaux Man arrested earlier this summer for several counts of rape, crimes against nature and domestic abuse, is now charged with 194 counts of possession of child porn.

Douglas Baney, 60, a former Nicholls math instructor, was arrested in June 2020 after two victims came forward and claimed that Baney had inappropriately touched them as children several years prior.

Further investigation revealed that Baney forcefully engaged in sexual intercourse with one of the victims, and that the incidents occurred over time at locations in Larose, Lockport and Thibodaux.

At the time, Baney was arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree rape and three counts of aggravated crimes against nature. He was also charged with two counts of domestic abuse battery.

As the investigation continued, detectives executed search warrants on Baney's electronic devices, and found child pornography.

On Thursday, Baney was booked on 194 counts of pornography involving juveniles. He remains in the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex and bail is now set at $521,000.
