CLINTON — An East Feliciana Parish man turned himself in to the parish jail after pleading guilty to indecent behavior with a juvenile, court records show.

Derek Santangelo turned himself in to officials Tuesday afternoon, several hours after he was due to surrender to begin serving his 160-day jail sentence.

Santangelo is accused of inappropriately touching a young girl in July 2022. Unfiltered with Kiran is not releasing the girl’s exact age to protect her.
