Case summaryAdd info | Back to top
Allegedly, d’Aquin sexually abused multiple children at his local LDS church building (chapel) in Bossier City, Louisiana in the late 1980s or early 1990s.
D’Aquin served a full-time LDS mission to Phoenix, Arizona in 1986-88 and was allegedly sent home for sexually abusing children, although FLOODLIT is not aware of any related criminal charges. At the time, d’Aquin’s father was the local Mormon bishop of the Brownlee ward.
In March 1994, d’Aquin was arrested after complaints that he fondled a 9-year-old-girl on an undisclosed date at the Mormon chapel at 310 Wellington Drive, Bossier City, LA 71111. A news article in the Shreveport Times dated 1994-03-25 stated that police said d’Aquin had been investigated previously and had “a history of sexual abuse.”
D’Aquin’s 1994 criminal conviction allegedly resulted from his ability to attend church without restriction.
