Bewick man accused of abusing girl, 6

By Preston Gill

A Berwick man was arrested Sunday afternoon and charged with two counts of sexual battery involving a 6-year-old child, according to a news release from St. Mary Parish Sheriff Mark Hebert.

Dex Michael Clements, 26, of River Road in Berwick, is alleged to have committed sexual battery on a female victim who was, at the time of the battery, 6 years old.

An investigation in this case began in early February after a complaint of the molestation of a child was received by the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff said a deputy working detail at Kemper Williams Park in Patterson made contact with Clements, conducted a warrants check and discovered that Clements was wanted on the active warrant.

Clements was taken to the parish jail. No bail is set.
