TOTALLY HITS RADIO | LAKE CHARLES, LA. — On June 10, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office received a complaint from Stephanie N. McGehee, 19, 2609 Melba Street, Sulphur, regarding a woman physically abusing a 7 year old family member. McGehee advised deputies she observed the woman strike the child on her buttocks and face, causing numerous bruises and marks, and also accused the woman of throwing the child up against the wall.

When questioned by detectives, McGehee confirmed the allegations she made were not true and the bruises and marks on the child were actually obtained during horseplay with another child after McGehee fell asleep while she was supposed to be babysitting the children. McGehee confirmed she filed a false police report because she did not want to be accused of hurting or causing the bruises to the 7 year old child.

After further investigation, McGehee was arrested on July 16 and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with criminal mischief (filing a false report).

Judge Sharon Wilson set her bond at $2,000.

CPSO Detective Brittney Jones is the lead investigator on this case.
