Maurepas man found guilty of sexual battery with a child

LIVINGSTON, La. — Nicholas Cody Flanagan, 27, of Maurepas, was found guilty of two counts of sexual battery of a juvenile under the age of 13 last week.

The case goes back to January 2022, when Flanagan’s significant other confronted him about being naked in front of a child, whose exact age will not be disclosed due to it being a sex crime.

The significant other said when Flanagan saw them walk outside, he tried to run to where they couldn’t see him and cover up himself with his pants.

The victim confided in Flanagan’s significant other that Flanagan was “forcing them to touch his genitals for at least the past year, and Flanagan had touched the child’s genitals on two occasions.”

Livingston Parish deputies arrested Flanagan on March 1, 2022 and launched an investigation into the allegations of misappropriately touching a child under the age of 13.

When Flanagan was questions, detectives noted he changed his story several times and during the interview, would not make eye contact. Plus, officials said he was sweating and shaking.

On March 30, 2023, Flanagan was in a Livingston Parish courtroom where District Attorney Scott M. Perrilloux said a jury took four hours to find Flanagan guilty of two counts of sexual battery of a juvenile under the age of 13. Assistant District Attorneys Kurt Wall and Kaitlyn Mcmorris prosecuted the case.

Flanagan will be sentenced on May 10. The sentence for each charge is between 25 and 99 years.
