A Destrehan, Louisiana, high school teacher was arrested on Jan. 14 for allegedly having sex with an underage student.

Kimberly Naquin, 26, is the daughter of St. Charles Parish School Board President Dennis Naquin, who oversees her employer Destrehan High School, according to information obtained by The Times-Picayune. Her mother is reportedly a teacher in the same public school system.

Naquin was booked on charges of carnal knowledge of a juvenile and prohibited sexual conduct between a teacher and student.

Additionally, she faces ten counts of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile in Kenner, police spokesman Lt. Brian McGregor said.

A family member of the student alerted police to the sexual relationship, WGNO reports.

The student told police the relationship began in September 2014 and continued up until or about August 2015, Sheriff Greg Champagne said Jan. 15 during a news conference.

The student also told police most of the incidents occurred at Naquin’s home in Kenner, with some happening in a classroom at Destrehan High School and at a home in Destrehan.

The following statement was released by Stevie Crovetto, Director of Public Information for St. Charles Parish Public Schools:

“The school system is fully cooperating with the Sheriff’s Office. The teacher has been suspended without pay in accordance with district policy and procedures pending the outcome of an investigation. This is a personnel issue; therefore, no other information will be released at this time.”

Naquin is being held on a $75,000 bond.

Naquin is the third teacher at Destrehan High School to face charges of having sex with a minor student, according to The Times-Picayune. In 2014, Shelly Dufresne and Rachel Respess were accused of having sex with a 16-year-old male student. Dufresne pleaded guilty to the crime, while Respess, whose charge was later changed to failing to report a felony, pleaded not guilty.
