Landlord Gets Pinched For Allegedly Hitting Up Tenants' Teen Daughters For Sex Under Threat Of Eviction; 2nd Alleged Victim Comes Forward After News Of Earlier Arrest Breaks

In Harahan, Louisiana, WWL-TV Channel 4 reports:
  • A landlord who has been arrested on first-degree rape charges for allegedly forcing the teen daughter of a tenant to have sex with him in order to prevent eviction is now facing more charges as a teen from another family has come forward.

    Landlord Kenneth Bryant, 46, not only threatened to throw the family of a 16-year-old girl out of their apartment if she didn't perform sex acts on him, but the girl’s parents say Bryant followed through with that threat after she reported the crime to police.

    “He threatened her with her job. Threatened to have her fired from her job. Threatened to have us evicted. Threatened to have my sons evicted if she didn't do these acts,” the girl’s father, who asked to remain anonymous, said.

    The father says his daughter was coerced and even forced to perform the sex acts.

    Bryant was first arrested by Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s deputies in early December, with another arrest by Kenner Police last week for carnal knowledge of a juvenile and molestation of a juvenile. They re-booked Bryant on a charge of first-degree rape after the victim told a child advocate Bryant forced her to lay down and perform oral sex on him, and that she was able to shove him off before he forced himself on her further.
