St. Charles deputies arrest Destrehan teacher for allegedly having sexual contact with student


DESTREHAN, Louisiana — St. Charles Parish sheriff's deputies say a 34-year-old teacher at Destrehan High School has been arrested for allegedly having sexual contact with a 16-year-old student.

Capt. Patrick Yoes (YOHZ) said in a written statement that Shelley Dufresne (DOO-frayn), of Montz, was arrested about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on a warrant on one count of carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

Deputies say school officials reported the incident to the sheriff's office on Friday after the alleged victim reportedly bragged to other students that he was having sexual relationships with teachers.

Authorities say the incident with Dufresne allegedly occurred in early September at a home in Montz.

It was unclear whether Dufresne has an attorney.
