Alleged Abuse: Named by the Diocese Lake Charles as a cleric who served in the area before Lake Charles became a diocese, and against whom the Diocese of Lake Charles received an accusation. Around 1964, Chachere is accused of sexual misconduct of a minor while he served as Parochial Vicar at Our Lady Queen of Heaven. The Diocese of Lake Charles received the allegation in 2009 and responded by referring the case to the Diocese of Lafayette.
