Social media is abuzz with the latest scandal hitting a high school in Louisiana. Two teachers, 32-year-old Shelley Dufresne and Rachel Respess, 24, took after school involvement with a student to another whole level. Students told local media source WGNO, the two teachers engaged in sexual activity with a then 16-year-old student. It also was not the first time, students shared. Reportedly, during the evening of September 12, the two educators met up with the Destrehan High School student, following a football game. They drove over to Respess’ home and reportedly engaged in sexual activities for several hours. The timeline of the events include infidelity and several charges against both teachers.

 

The Teachers

Dufresne is the student’s current English teacher, and has been teaching out of the high school for the past 10 years. She also is listed as a married woman with three children. Respess was the student’s English teacher last school year, and has been with the high school for just two years. The women became friends after Respess became a member of faculty, officials report.

How the Teachers were Busted

School officials contacted the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office, advising other students were reporting a male, now 17-year-old student, was telling his friends he was “having a sexual relationship with his teachers.” Police visited the student and interviewed him to determine the timeline of events. While the age of consent is 17 in Louisiana, the encounters also occurred when he was 16.

The student told officials the sexual relationships and encounters were consensual. Kenner Police Chief Michael Glaser stated the teachers were then interviewed.

Respess provided brief information, states Glaser, but refused to provide “intricate details.” For Dufresne, she denied providing any information to the police. Her father is also the state District Judge Emile St. Pierre, reports Nola.  Dufresne was already in custody, following her arrest on Tuesday for having sex with the same student in her Montz home.

Wednesday morning, Respess surrendered to authorities with her attorney in tow. The women face charges of indecent behavior with a juvenile, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and carnal knowledge of a juvenile. As of this time, it is reported Dufresne has posted bail, but Respess has not.

Conflict of Interest in Case

With Dufresne’s father sitting as a St. Charles Parish judge, it is possible the Supreme Court will have to assign an outside judge in this matter. There are two additional judges, and one just recused herself.

Judge Lauren Lemmon stated she has a working relationship with the father, and could not preside over the case. But, she only filed her recusal after setting Defresne’s bond at $200,000. Defresne was placed on house arrest, in the event of posting bond, and is permitted to leave her home only for mental health treatments.

The remaining judge sits with a decision on her lap. Judge Michele Morel is up for re-election, taking the high profile case can become a turning point in the election, and may force her to also step down from the case.  Joel Chaisson, the district attorney has handed the case to an unbiased current assistant district attorney from St. Charles. Julie Cullen has no personal connections in the city, Chaisson said.

Officials are reviewing cell phones of the teachers and student to determine if a rumored recorded video or additional information will reveal more information. A court date for the teachers has not yet been announced.

Controversy 

Much too often teacher and student cases bring forth a wealth of opinions. Would the response of the general public demand immediate punishment for two male teachers accused of sleeping with a female minor student? Check out the responses on social media and chime in the comments.

So……two sorta hot female teachers in Louisiana had a threesome with a 16 yr old boy. Where were these kind of teachers when I was 16?
