KENNER, La. — Two Louisiana high school teachers face charges after allegedly having sexual relations with a teenage student.

At a press conference Wednesday, authorities say 32-year-old Shelley Dufresne and 24-year-old Rachel Respess had a threesome with the student at Respess’ home after a football game in September.

Police said the student was a junior and said they are looking into the possibility that he videotaped or photographed the encounter.

According to police, Respess taught the victim last year, Dufresne was his current English teacher. They are said to have been friends.

Dufresne is married with three children, WGNO reports.

Both teachers now face felony charges of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Respess turned herself into police on Wednesday, and Dufresne was booked Tuesday.
