When it comes to the schools children attend in their teen years, it is important to remember the job of teachers is to shape these young minds, in a good way.
After all children spend 7-8 hours a day being influenced by their educators and other adult figures that aren’t their parents. Sometimes, sadly, educators take advantage of their students.
I report on these cases all too often for this not to be considered just absolutely sick at this point. Consensual or not, as a teacher, you should never abuse the trust a young confused teenager has for you. And abusing that s3xually is even more disgusting. Shelly Dufresne is no exception to that judgement.
In 2015, one high school teacher named Shelley Dufresne, from New Orleans, Louisiana pleaded guilty to having s3x with a student multiple times. At the time the young boy was only 16. Shelly was a married mother of three and an English teacher at Destrehan High School. Now, I am also from the south and I understand the hillbilly ways surrounding s3x with a minor in Louisiana, the consent age is 17, however the boy was not 17 yet and for the number of times Shelley had s3x with him, well, if she was a man she’d be considered a pervert.
Shelley had her day in court on Tuesday last week and new discoveries were made to the court. Her original TWO charges are two counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, which could land her in prison for 10 years as well as having to register as a s3x offender in Jefferson Parish. But in the court we now know the dirty details of her full on affair with the teenage boy.
Turns out, the two boned wild throughout the school day in her Honda Pilot and at her home after his football practices. As the jury would learn moments later, one of the s3xual encounters took place with another teacher, Rachel Respess, 26, who was a colleague of Shelley’s. Shelley was out at a bar in September of 2014, because this is Louisiana and nobody gives a damn, so was the teenager. After a night of heavy drinking the boy’s friends began to taunt the boy about his affair with the teacher. The scene quickly escalated into a dramatic showdown and a fight broke out. Shelley and the boy left together, heading to Rachel’s apartment because her husband and three kids were waiting for her at home.
At Rachel’s apartment, Shelley and the boy began having s3x and after a while, Rachel joined in for a threesome. In court, Rachel’s attorney defended her with a statement from Rachel claiming that actual s3x never happened because the boy couldn’t get an erection. Then, Rachel supposedly went to buy cigarettes and came back with a pill to help the teenage boy but he didn’t take it. The teenage boy said there is a video filmed by him after Rachel passed out of him putting his genitals all over her face and making fun of her. The teen claims this was the last time he had s3x with either of them.
The video was never submitted into evidence but Rachel’s lawyer says the teen used it to blackmail Rachel due to an incident that occurred in her classroom prior to the threesome. The teen’s locker room buddies confessed to having seen the video being passed around their social group. Rachel said she was blackmailed via a fake Facebook account she made to communicate with the boy, “Madison Mexicano”, was the name she went by on the social media platform and that is where she received the threats to expose her. Ironically enough this wasn’t the only secret Rachel had.
Daily MailApparently, Rachel was already a registered s3x offender in St. Charles Parish but struck a deal with the court to attend a 90 day mental health treatment program.
So far the judge overlooking the case has found Shelley not guilty of her two counts of carnal juvenile knowledge because of the teens, “braggadocious nature” and his blackmailing of the teachers. She got away with this one boys…
