2 teachers accused of group sex with student free on bail

GRETNA, La. - Two teachers accused of having group sex with a student in Louisiana have posted bail and been released from custody, reports CBS affiliate WWLTV.

Police say 32-year-old Shelley Dufresne and 24-year-old Rachel Repress posted $7,000 cash bond and left the Jefferson Parish jail early Thursday.

Dufresne and Repress are accused of having sex with a 16-year-old male student at Repress' apartment in Kenner, outside New Orleans. They teach at nearby Destrehan High School.

Dufresne is also accused of having sex with the teenager prior to that encounter, at her home in Montz, reports The Times-Picayune.

Both Dufresne and Repress face charges of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

Authorities say they were tipped last week when school officials told them the student was bragging to others about a sexual relationship with teachers.

The paper reports Kenner Police Chief Mike Glaser said investigators are looking into a rumor that the sexual encounter was recorded on video.

ABC affiliate WGNO reports Dufresne's bio on the school's website, which has since been taken down, says she is a married mother of three young children and is the daughter of a local judge.

Both teachers have reportedly been suspended from their jobs without pay.
