  • Louisiana Man Charged With 100 Counts Of First Degree Rape	 	 	 			Harvey Joseph Fountain

A 71-year-old central Louisiana man has been arrested on 100 preliminary counts of first-degree rape, accused of sexually assaulting children in and around his hometown decades ago, authorities said.

Harvey Joseph Fountain was arrested April 9 on 50 counts of first-degree rape, a week after Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office received a complaint on April 1 from a now-adult who accused Fountain of rape while the accuser was a child, the sheriff's office said in a release. Days later, additional victims were identified - the sheriff's office isn't saying how many - and 50 more counts were added.

Through their investigation, detectives were able to gather evidence that supported the original allegations. This evidence provided sufficient probable cause for Fountain's arrest. Deputies said the investigation is still ongoing and more arrests or charges are possible.

However the number of alleged first-degree rape incidents had doubled by April 12 when Fountain was re-arrested and re-booked into the jail at 8.47am.

Fountain was being held on a $1 million bond as of late Tuesday.

A $500,000 bond was set on those allegations.

"One victim came forward and was aware of others that may have been a victim of Fountain's", Phillips told The Washington Post.

Phillips told DailyMail.com: 'Additional victims/witnesses have and will be interviewed but nothing that can be released at this time'. It wasn't immediately clear whether Fountain has a lawyer.
