Former Teacher Wants House Arrest Terms Eased
HAHNVILLE, La. (AP) — One of the former Destrehan High School teachers accused of having sex with a 16-year-old student is asking a judge to ease the terms of her house arrest.
Shelley Dufresne was originally released on a $200,000 bond on the condition she remain in her home except for limited circumstances.
Her lawyer wants a curfew running from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. so Dufresne could take her children to school, attend appointments and go to exercise classes.
The New Orleans Advocate reports the motion will be heard on Nov. 25.
Dufresne was arrested Sept. 30 and booked on one count of carnal knowledge of a juvenile for an alleged sexual encounter at her Montz home.
A day later, she was arrested by Kenner police, along with fellow teacher for allegedly having a three-way sexual encounter with the student.
