St. Mary Parish Sheriff's deputies have arrested 32-year-old Nathan Starling of Morgan City for molestation of a juvenile and indecent behavior with a juvenile.

A detective learned from the 9-year-old male victim that Starling has inappropriately touched the child at a home in Morgan City.

The investigation started several weeks ago, and when Starling heard about the investigation he went to the Sheriff's Office in Morgan City.

He was then taken into custody in connection with the case.
