Westwego, LA. — Almost a year after officials discovered a Westwego middle school student “was obviously pregnant,” Jose Moreno Cervantes of Denham Springs was arrested by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, charged with three counts of aggravated rape of a victim under 13 and one count of aggravated rape.

Records obtained by The News from the Westwego Police Department and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office indicate the alleged crimes were uncovered originally by school officials from two separate Westwego schools in late August 2015.
