Livingston Parish grand jury indicts man on rape charges

A Livingston Parish grand jury indicted a 33-year-old man on two counts of first-degree rape on Jan. 24, according to District Attorney Scott Perrilloux.

Welner Sura of Livingston was indicted on rape charges allegedly involving a victim under age 13. Sura is scheduled to appear for arraignment on Feb. 2.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested Sura and transported him to the Livingston Parish Detention Center in October after an anonymous caller reported his location.

If Sura is found guilty, he could face life in prison without parole.
