TOTALLY HITS RADIO | LAKE CHARLES, LA. — On June 30, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested Ashley N. Hess, 31, 3118 Burton Street, Lake Charles, after an investigation revealed she knowingly allowed convicted sex offender, Raymond “Daniel” Lowery, 26, Sulphur, to repeatedly violate his sex offender registration requirements.

On numerous occasions, Hess allowed Lowery to be at her home while her four children, all under the age of 12, were present, and her home is within 1,000 feet of a daycare, even though she was well aware that both were violations of Lowery’s sex offender registration requirements.

Detectives also learned through this investigation that in 2013, Hess intentionally withheld and misled information to the staff of a local recreation facility regarding Lowery being a registered sex offender, allowing him to coach and attend numerous t-ball games of her juvenile son, which is also a violation of his registration.

Hess was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with harboring or concealing a sexual offender and was released on a $10,000 bond set by Judge Michael Canaday.

As reported by the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office in a press release on May 5, Lowery was arrested on May 1 and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center. He was charged with failure to register as a sex offender; and unlawful presence of a sex offender and is being held without bond. Lowery was convicted of indecent behavior with a juvenile under the age of 7 in Vernon Parish in September 2009.
CPSO Detective Allison Toups and Lisa Hardy are the investigators on these cases.
