LOUISIANA – Two high school teachers in Louisiana are accused of having sex with the same student.

Shelly Dufresne, 32, and Rachel Respess, 24, two Destrehan High English teachers are now facing felony charges out of Jefferson Parish.

Kenner Police Chief Michael Glaser said the two met with a Destrehan High student after a football game on Sept. 12 and then drove to Respess’ apartment where the three had sex.

The student, who authorities say is a junior, is 17 years old but was 16 when the alleged relationship began.

Former students said the three had been hot and heavy for some time, meeting for sex multiple times and documenting some of their encounters on video.

According to Dufresne’s Destrehan High profile she’s an LSU and Destrehan High alum, graduating from DHS in 2000. She was starting her tenth year as a teacher and reveals she is married with three young children.

Respess’ profile shows she was starting her second year at DHS and is also an LSU and Destrehan High alum, graduating from high school in 2008.

The two women turned themselves in to authorities Wednesday.
