Two English teachers in Destrehan, Louisiana, were arrested after being accused of having a threesome with an underage student.

Destrehan High School teachers Shelley Dufresne, 32, and Rachel Respess, 24, were charged with carnal knowledge of a juvenile, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and indecent behavior with a juvenile after engaging in a threesome with a 16-year-old student.

The incident reportedly took place at one of the teacher's apartments after a Sept. 12 football game. 

According to the police report, the teachers and the student had sex together until the early morning hours of Sept. 13.

Authorities learned of the crime after the student was overheard “bragging to other students that he was having a sexual relationship with teachers.” The student allegedly told classmates that he had several sexual encounters with Dufresne and Respess, and even documented the activity on video.

The student, who is now 17, told police that the relationship was consensual.

“No matter what sex the victim is, everyone should be outraged,” Police Chief Michael Glaser said. “You have an educator. Their responsibility is the safety and the education of children ... They should have known better."

Dufresne, who is reportedly married with three children, had been teaching for 10 years at the time of the incident. Respess was in her second year.

Dufresne pleaded guilty to obscenity in April for a separate incident with the same student, and was sentenced to 90 days in a mental health facility.
