Husband pleads guilty on child molestation charges

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The husband of a former Florida Department of Children and Families worker accused of molesting two minors pled guilty according to court documents.

Louis Vereen was arrested on Dec. 23 for lewd/lascivious molestation.

The two girls were allegedly molested by Vereen when they were around nine and six years old. The molestation allegedly ceased two years later.

Tara Vareen was arrested in January 2013 after she became aware in 2011 that her husband molested the two young girls and did not report it, according to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office police report.

Tara found out about the molestation when she was going through one of the girl's rooms. She found a letter that stated that Louis Vereen had molested the girls.

Tara told police she confronted her husband about the letter. "She said they handled it among themselves and he apologized," the police report said.

The report also states that Vereen asked "why her husband had to be arrested, since the molestation happened so long ago."

Tara Vereen was terminated from her job at DCF. She processed applications for food stamps for the agency.
