Louisiana threesome teachers
Rachel Respess one of the two teachers since accused of having a threesome with a then 16 year old student.

Shelley Dufresne, 32 and Rachel Respess, 24, the two Louisiana teachers accused of having a threesome with a then 16 year old student have been released on bail after each posted $7,000 bond. Yet compounding matters is the revelation that one of the accused’s father serves as one of the three judges in St Clair Parish, the district in which the encounter took place.

The teachers were arrested earlier this week for allegedly taking a 16-year-old student to Repess’ home after a football game and having sex with him until ‘the early morning hours.’ Dufresne also allegedly had sex with the teen at her home. Because when it rains, it pours…

Right decision? Shelly Dufresne not guilty

Shelley Dufresne trial: ‘I love Mexican boys’

Shelley Dufresne, teacher accused of threesome with student seeks to be let out of house arrest to attend jazzercise.

Two Lousiana high school teachers have threesome with 16 year old boy. Arrested after bragging.

But it’s here were things get complicated.

WGNO reports that Dusfresne, who is married with three young children, is the daughter of Emile St. Pierre, one of just three judges in St. Charles Parish. Judge Lauren Lemmon has already recused herself from the case, leaving only one judge—Michele Morel—available to hear the case. If Morel recuses herself (and she is expected to), an outside judge will need to be brought in to oversee the trial.

Shit hurt the storm after the then minor student (now 17) at Destrehan High School in Kenner, La. where the teachers taught English began bragged about the encounters to his friends. Encounters which have since been revealed to have been taped on video.

According to Kenner Police Chief Michael Glaser, both teachers taught the student.  ‘This Rachel Respess was an English teacher of the victim last school year, so she did have some type of contact and knew him. Shelley Dufresne is his current teacher,’ Glaser said at a press conference Wednesday. ‘Nothing surprises me anymore really, but I do believe it’s lack of a better judgment. They should have known better.’

Interestingly the then 16 year old youth involved would tell that he had willfully participated and had not engaged against his will… a contention that has led to many debating a minor’s ability to understand that they are being railroaded by an adult? Or whether a male at that age has a higher sexual proclivity than females which some argue ought to excuse the female teachers…

Freed on bail and remanded to appear once again in court, the teachers now face charges of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile, and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

With the age of consent in Louisiana set at 17, the teachers could now potentially face up to 17-and-a-half years in prison.

A cursory reading of comments from the web has shown a disproportionate amount of readers congratulating the boy but one wonders if the genders were reversed the degree of condemnation that would be hurled at the teachers instead?

Perhaps it was this attitude that allowed the two English teachers to believe that they weren’t taking advantage of a male student…? Of course it’s also interesting to note the teachers haven’t been charged with rape (as a male would be) but simply the delinquency of a juvenile…

    The age of consent in Louisiana is 17, and to my knowledge there is no law forbidding K-12 teachers from sleeping with students 17 or older. These teachers didn’t wait until the student was 17, so they are in trouble with the law. Now… even if they had done so, they should still lose their jobs because it’s quite unprofessional.

    As long as a female student in these circumstances is also not a victim…

    Never have so many words been employed to say so little, and so poorly. So much effort to gild a turd, something a step above Maxim, but done more cheaply, and with fewer ideas.

    When will lucky young men learn to keep their mouths shut?

    They should have picked me as the 3rd. We would still continue with the threesome and I would not have spilled the beans and the ladies would be squirming like pigs from satisfaction
