LOUISIANA- As authorities continue to investigate the case of teachers accused of having sex with the same student, new details are being revealed.

Reports indicate police began their investigation last Friday after educators learned the teenage student had been “bragging to other students that he was having a sexual relationship with teachers.”

According to our sister station, WGNO, Shelley Dufresne, 32, and Rachel Respess, 24, both English teachers at Destrehan High School, face felony charges for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student at the same time.

Former students told WGNO the student and both teachers had been involved for some time, meeting for sex multiple times and documenting some of their encounters on video.

Authorities are now searching through cell phones looking for the video evidence.
