Louisiana Teacher Accused Of 9-HOUR THREESOME With Teen Gets No Jail Time For OTHER Illicit Sex

Posted by The Zodiac | Bad Teachers | Tuesday 14 April 2015 7:04 am

One of the two blonde English teachers in small-town Louisiana arrested for having sex with the same then-16-year-old male student pleaded guilty to obscenity on Thursday and has thus far avoided prison time. She won’t even have to register as a sex offender.

That’s the good news for the former teacher, Shelley S. Dufresne, reports The Times-Picayune.

The bad news is that she must spend 90 days within the confines of an unspecified mental health facility. (She will also serve three years of probation, pay a $1,000 fine and surrender her teaching license.)

The boy’s mother appeared irate at a court hearing during which Dufresne admitted her actions. At the same time, both parents had “expressed their support for this resolution of the case,” notes the New Orleans newspaper.

In happier days, before the married mother of three was busted for her role in a ménage à trois with an underage boy, Dufresne taught at Destrehan High School in Destrehan, La.

The other teacher involved in the unholy trinity was Rachel Respess, 24.

Dufresne is by no means out of the woods for her exploits. Neither is Respess. They both still face criminal charges for their roles in a threesome with the same, unidentified student.

The charges to which Dufresne pleaded guilty only relate to sex she — and she alone — had with the student.

A separate criminal trial for the threesome could possibly loom on the horizon.

The threesome is what made national headlines, though. And why wouldn’t it? The epic event impressively lasted from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. the next morning, according to local police.

St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s deputies say the threesome happened on a Friday night, after a high school football game (which Destrehan won easily, 41-7). It was a special night, too, because it was Dufresne’s birthday.

Dufresne “enticed and transported” the student to Respess’s apartment, explains the New York Daily News. Respess, the younger teacher, and the teen had sex. Meanwhile, Dufresne “began intimately kissing” the younger teacher “in an attempt to arouse all parties involved, all who were complete[ly] disrobed.”

Dufresne had been the student’s English teacher this year. Respress had the pleasure of teaching him in English class last year.

The sheriff’s office was tipped off after school officials reported that the unidentified student was bragging to friends about his exploits. (RELATED: TWO Teachers Victimized 16-Year-Male Student With Epic THREESOME)

Both teachers are alumnae of Destrehan High and both graduated from Louisiana State University.

Dufresne’s still-accessible Destrehan High webpage shows she was a 10-year veteran at the school.

Her father is 29th Judicial District Judge Emile St. Pierre, notes The Times-Picayune.

Respess has been an English teacher at Destrehan High for two years.

The school district suspended both Dufresne and Respess without pay around the time police arrested the teachers for their sexual exploits.

As this graphic from Mandatory.com illustrates fairly conclusively, judges tend to find it in their merciful hearts to give lower prison sentences (and often no prison time at all) to attractive female teachers who have sex with underage male students. Ugly female teachers frequently fail to garner such compassion.

Two California teachers had sex with high school students at beach party: police

Posted by The Zodiac | Bad Teachers | Tuesday 14 April 2015 6:54 am
Allegations surfaced Friday that Melody Lippert, 38, and Michelle Ghirelli, 30, both teachers at South Hills High School had sex with students at an alcohol-fueled party at San Clemente State Beach in December.

Two California teachers had sex with high school students at a beach party, authorities have alleged.

Both Melody Lippert, 38, and Michelle Ghirelli, 30, of South Hills High School were arrested over the weekend after allegedly seducing students at a boozy beach party, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office statement.

At December’s San Clemente State Beach party, detectives say Lippert provided several high school students with alcohol for the overnight campout before having sexual relations with a student.

It’s believed Ghirelli joined the gathering — which was not sanctioned by the school — and had sex with an underage male student.

The allegations surfaced Friday when Covina-Valley Unified School District officials learned of the teachers’ possible activity and called West Covina Police Department, the LA Times reported.

Both teachers are accused of having sex with students at a San Clemente State Beach party with alcohol.

Lippert’s charges do not reflect any sex crimes because she allegedly had sex with a student who was over 18 years old.

She is also accused of having sex with a student at a party in November as well.

Lippert is charged with conspiracy and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, but Ghirelli is charged with oral copulation and unlawful sex with a minor.

Both women are expected to be arraigned next week.

NJ teacher admits to having sex with teen student

Posted by The Zodiac | Bad Teachers | Saturday 10 August 2013 8:00 am

teachersex-erin-haskellA southern New Jersey school teacher has admitted having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student.

Ocean County prosecutors say 32-year-old Erin Haskell of Barnegat pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexual assault. She will have to register as a sex offender and faces up to 10 years in prison, but will remain free on $300,000 bail until she’s sentenced.

Haskell was a Spanish teacher with the Toms River Regional Schools district. She worked at the Intermediate South school in Beachwood, where she also served as faculty advisor to the drama club.

In return for her guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to dismiss other charges Haskell faced, including aggravated sexual assault.

Authorities have said the relationship took place last year, between June and September. The sexual activities occurred in both Beachwood and Barnegat.

Ahwatukee, AZ teacher accused of sexual conduct with student

Posted by The Zodiac | Bad Teachers | Saturday 10 August 2013 7:56 am

teachersex-david-depuydtAn Ahwatukee teacher was arrested by Phoenix police on suspicion of engaging in sexual conduct with one of his students, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

Police on Sunday received a report with allegations that 27-year-old David DePuydt had committed various sexual acts with a 15-year-old female student of his, according to a police report.

DePuydt is a secondary teacher at Horizon Community Learning Center on 48th Street south of Chandler Boulevard.

A police investigation discovered that DePuydt and the female victim were in a “relationship” for about seven months, the report said. The relationship stretched from January to July of this year, according to the report.

DePuydt later admitted the acts to detectives, police said. He was arrested on suspicion of six counts of sexual conduct with a minor.

A letter sent to parents of the school’s students on Monday said DePuydt was suspended from his position without pay pending the results of an ongoing police investigation.

DePuydt was the photography and world history teacher for this school year.

Horizons Community Learning Center, a K-12 school, started classes last Monday, according to a school spokeswoman.

teachersex-jenee-blackertA Belvidere North High School teacher faces criminal charges.¬¨‚Ć She’s accused of having sexual contact with a student.
Police arrested poplar grove’s Jenee Blackert on Thursday. Investigators say a 17-year-old student reported the inappropriate contact on Sunday, July 28th.The 30 year old social studies teacher was charged with four counts of criminal sexual assault and taken to the Boone County jail. She’s since bonded out.At Belvidere North High School, parents and their teenagers spent the day picking up school schedules and getting ready for the new year, with a teacher’s recent arrest in the back of their minds.”I’d be scared to death if it happened to one of my kids,” says Carol Klein, the mother of two high schoolers.

WREX.com – Rockford’s News Leader

Gary Monto, who’s daughter is going to be a Senior says, “It’s just not right.”

Returning to the classroom means new clothes and school supplies. Klein and Monto say they are preparing their students with something more. Their children will start the school year with some real-life advice.

“We talk about it with my daughter about how to be safe, and know the signs. If you’re uncomfortable, get out. Get out fast,” says Monto.

“I talk to my kids about people who should touch them and who shouldn’t touch you, and making sure that they’re aware it could be anybody,” says Klein.

Belvidere School Superintendent Michael Houselog says the high school is cooperating with investigators.  Blackert is on unpaid leave until further notice.

“I’m sure that they’ll do whatever they need to do to make sure that these kids are safe,” says Klein.

Investigators say the contact between Blackert and the student did not happen at Belvidere North High School, although they wouldn’t say exactly where.

Criminal sexual assault is a felony, which means if Blackert is found guilty, she could face four to 15 years in prison.

This is not the first time a Belvidere school district teacher was charged with sexual assault.

Back in 2008, another Belvidere School District, Loren Leoni, a teacher and volleyball coach  was charged with a similar crime. She got 48 months of probation and had to register as a sex offender.

Dallas high school teacher arrested after alleged sexual relationship with student

Posted by The Zodiac | Bad Teachers | Saturday 10 August 2013 7:11 am

teachersex-lesley-ann-sharpA Dallas high school teacher is accused of having sex with her freshman student.

Lesley Ann Sharp of Collin County was arrested Thursday on charges of having an improper relationship between educator and student, possession or promotion of child pornography, tampering with physical evidence and perjury, documents show.

Sharp, 24, was released from the Collin County Jail on $29,500 bail early Friday.

DISD spokesman Jon Dahlander said Friday that Sharp has been placed on leave pending the outcome of the criminal case.

Sharp — an English teacher at Hillcrest High School — is accused of having sex with a male minor more than 25 times. Documents say the sexual intercourse occurred in her car in a parking lot, her apartment and his apartment while the student’s parents were not home.

Sharp is also accused of exchanging thousands of messages of sexual content, including explicit photos. The affidavit listed a dozen obscene terms that were used more than 1,500 times in the text messages.

Sharp and the student “exchanged 116 telephone calls, 173 multi-media messages and 15,371 text messages” between May 2013 and July 2013, records show.

Officials say Sharp synced information from her iPhone and her school-owned laptop.

Before handing the computer over to investigators, Sharp deleted both “iTunes and backup directories,” records show.

The information was later found “in an allocated space on the hard drive.” Digital copies of text, photo and iMessages were also recovered.

Court documents say that three days before her arrest, Sharp was told there was an investigation pending, and she warned the student to delete all photos and messages.

In a written statement to DISD, Sharp denied having sexual contact with the student.

“Sharp engaged in the behaviors through a belief that she and student would never get caught,” the affidavit said.

Sharp’s mother, Rhonda Sharp, told The Dallas Morning News on Friday to “stay away.”

“We don’t have a comment,” Rhonda Sharp said. “Just that DISD should worry about other stuff instead of what they’re worrying about.”

It is unclear whether Sharp has an attorney.

Sharp graduated from the University of Texas in Dallas in December 2011 and was certified by the Texas Board of Education in 2012. She was hired as a high school teacher last October.

Crime NJ teacher accused of having sex with 15-year-old male student

Posted by The Zodiac | Bad Teachers | Saturday 10 August 2013 6:47 am

teachersex-kalee-warnickAn English teacher in Wall, N.J., has been accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student.

Kalee Warnick, 22, was arrested Tuesday on charges of third-degree aggravated criminal sexual contact and second-degree having a sexual relationship with a minor, according to the Asbury Park Press.

The complaint stated that the incident was reported to police on July 14.

Warnick, a first-year teacher and 2008 graduate of Wall High School, also worked as a summer home instructor.

The boy‚Äö√Ñ√¥s family attorney, James Maggs, told the Associated Press that the teenager has gone through a “horrible ordeal.”

Warnick will plead not guilty, her attorney, Alton Kenney, told the Associated Press, “because she is, in fact, not guilty.”

Wall Township Board of Education president Eva Applegate said in an interview with the Asbury Park Press that she was aware of the case but could not comment on it.

“The board will be discussing the employee’s contract renewal in a closed session next week,” she said.

A Facebook group called “Kalee Warnick is innocent until proven guilty” was created on Friday in support of the young teacher. It had about 280 members as of Saturday morning.

“She has been accused and charged with crimes that do not describe her character. I will never accept the fact until the truth is revealed,” the group’s description reads.

Warnick was released after posting $50,000 bail. She is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 6.

California teacher Charged with 41 Counts of Sex

Posted by The Zodiac | Bad Teachers | Sunday 28 July 2013 12:57 pm

mugshot-laura-whitehurstA Redlands, Calif., high school teacher accused of having a baby allegedly fathered by a teen student was charged Monday with 41 counts of sex and oral copulation with a minor.

Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst, 28, was arrested a week ago after the mother of a Citrus Valley High student contacted school officials about the suspected relationship between her son and the English teacher.

Authorities said Whitehurst had given birth June 18 to a baby fathered by the student with whom she alleged began having an affair when he was 16. The boy attended the baby’s birth, according to court documents.

After Whitehurst and the boy confirmed details of the relationship to a Redlands police detective, authorities made the accusations public. Then, at least two other men came forward and said they had had sexual relations with Whitehurst in 2007 and 2008.

One of the alleged victims spoke to NBC4 Southern California, saying he never felt victimized but wanted to share his story so that others might come forward to tell police about their experiences with Whitehurst.

Officials with the Redlands Unified School District had interviewed Whitehurst and her alleged victim about their relationship in May, but police were not contacted until the boy’s mother made a complaint, according to a police detective’s affidavit.

The charges filed by the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s office against the teacher reflect alleged relationships with the three teen students. Whitehurst is charged with 30 counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, and 11 counts of oral copulation of a person under 18.
