On August 25, 2015 detectives with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office spoke with a woman who said she wanted to come forward and pursue criminal charges against Jason Paul Galjour, claiming he raped her in 2011.

According to his Facebook page, Galjour is employed at Precision Athletics cheer-leading facility in Baton Rouge.

The victim is a former employee of Galjour.

An affidavit filed with the sheriff’s office said that she was raped by Galjour at his home in the summer of 2011.

Galjour was contacted on August 28th and asked to meet with detectives.

His attorney contacted detectives and stated that there was no need for them to meet with his client just so Galjour could deny doing it.

A warrant for his arrest was filed on Tuesday.

According to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office website Galjour was booked into the parish prison today with a 50,000 dollar bond.
