Sheriff: Teacher Arrested, Admits Having Sex With Students
PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) — A teacher in the Iberville Parish school district has been arrested and admitted to sexual relationships with three students.
The Advocate reports 30-year-old Keavin Keith was released on bond Tuesday after being arrested late Monday.
The district's academic officer says Keith taught ninth and 10th-grade physics and geography at Iberville's Math, Science and Arts Academy-West campus. He was placed on administrative leave without pay.
A news release says Keith was arrested after a former student who recently graduated told police she and the teacher had a sexual relationship. After further investigation, deputies discovered Keith also had sexual relationships with two other female students still enrolled at the school.
Keith is facing 37 counts related to inappropriate sexual relationships. His stepfather told the newspaper his son has a lawyer but no one would be commenting.
