In January, Destrehan High School teacher Kimberly Naquin, who is the daughter of the St. Charles Parish School Board president, was arrested on an allegation that she carried on a sexual relationship with a high school student for nearly a year
Naquin is at least the fourth teacher from Destrehan High since 2008 to face allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct with a student or students.
Last year, 33-year-old Shelley Dufresne agreed to a plea deal in St. Charles after being accused of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, but she still faces similar counts in Jefferson Parish. Like Naquin, Dufresne is the daughter of a high-ranking government official in St. Charles: 29th Judicial District Court Judge Emile St. Pierre.
Another former teacher at Destrehan High, Rachel Respess, was alleged to have participated in a three-way sexual encounter with Dufresne and a 16-year-old male student in Kenner. Respess has been charged with failing to report that encounter to authorities in Jefferson but not with a sex crime.
In 2008, former Destrehan High band and music teacher Byron Toups was charged with having sex with a 16-year-old female student at his home as well as trying to kiss another 17-year-old female student after locking the door to a room on campus during the previous academic year.
Toups ultimately pleaded guilty in 2009 to malfeasance, intimidation of a witness and simple battery of two students. He was sentenced to a year in jail followed by six months of home incarceration and then probation.
