Inmate facing multiple new charges after attacking another inmate

Lafourche Parish inmate Glenn Thompkins, 39, faces additional charges following an incident on Sunday, August 23.

At around 1 a.m. on Sunday, correction officers at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center responded to a disturbance in one of the cells. They discovered Inmate Glenn Thompkins had jumped on another inmate and began striking him in the head with his fists. Further investigation revealed Thompkins had also committed a sexual battery on the other inmate by touching him in a sexual manner.

Officers also learned Thompkins had exposed himself to the same inmate prior to the incident. The other inmate was treated for minor wounds to the head and face.

Thompkins has been incarcerated since January 2014. He was being held in lieu of $335,000 bond on charges including two counts of aggravated incest, two counts of distribution of crack cocaine, battery of a police officer, and obscenity.

Following the aforementioned incident, he was charged with a second count of obscenity, as well as sexual battery and simple battery. His total bond is now set at $386,000.
