Two Angola employees arrested, one is accused of rape

The West Feliciana Sheriff’s Office arrested two Louisiana State Penitentiary employees on separate crimes involving juveniles after the victims complained.

WFPSO Sheriff Brian Spillman said his office started investigating an alleged rape involving a juvenile after receiving a complaint from the victim’s family.

The alleged rape is said to have taken place on prison property where the employees live.

On February 16th, deputies executed an arrest warrant on Kirk Templeton, 34, of Angola.

Templeton was booked into the West Feliciana Detention Center on the charge of second degree rape. Templeton’s bond was set at $100,000.

Deputies also responded to the Angola community after receiving a complaint of a family disturbance and arrested Jacob Lee Irwin, 36, of Angola. He no longer works at Angola.

Irwin is accused of getting upset during a family argument where he pulled a knife on two of his children.

Irwin was taken into custody and booked into the West Feliciana Parish Detention Center on the charges of aggravated battery and cruelty to juveniles. His bond has been set at $40,000.

The Louisiana Dept of Corrections did issue a stammer: “While these alleged incidents did not occur while these individuals were on duty, they were alleged to have happened at the B Line employee residential area of Louisiana State Penitentiary. The Department of Corrections takes these allegations very seriously. As such, Kirk Templeton is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the case. Because Jacob Lee Irwin is a probationary employee, the Department of Corrections has separated his employment.”
