Kenner, LA - Two high school teachers from Louisiana were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student. 


32-year-old Shelley Dufresne and 24-year-old Rachel Respess each face one count of Carnal Knowledge of a Juvenile, Indecent Behavior with the Juvenile and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. Kenner Police said the two teachers engaged in a "three-way tryst" with a 16-year-old male student. 


Respess surrendered on Wednesday to police and investigators say her statements were very similar to what the victim told police. The victim told police the sex was consensual, however according to Louisiana state law, he was not old enough to consent. Police became aware of the situation after the student supposedly bragged about the incident to his friends, and even eluded to video evidence of the act. 


If convicted, each teacher faces anywhere from 0-17 1/2 years in prison.
