Teacher Posts Shocking Selfie Following Her Sentencing For Having A Threesome With A Student

Social media has been the downfall of many people, and that’s typically a result of the offending party failing to have a filter on what’s appropriate to share versus what’s not. One benefit of those falls from grace is that nefarious and disturbing behavior can be exposed, as in the case of this former Louisiana high school teacher.

As Fox 8 Live reports, former Destrehan High School teacher Shelley Dufresne has reached a plea deal to avoid jail time. Her offense? She confessed to having sex with a 16-year-old student, and she took to social media to spout off about her disturbing fling. The original charge of carnal knowledge with a juvenile has been bafflingly been reduced to a simple charge of obscenity, which means she will avoid jail time altogether.

Dufresne was facing three years behind bars, but she essentially walks away with a slap on the wrist. Her sentence consists of 90 days in a mental health facility and three years probation. Even more maddeningly, she will not be required to register as a sex offender, but she has at least had her teaching license revoked. While the victim admits that the sex was consensual, Dufresne’s flippant behavior about the whole situation is rubbing many the wrong way.

In addition to posting on Instagram after having sex with the child, she also took to social media soon after her court appearance.

"She needs to be somber. I don't think this was a joyous day at all. I think for sure she would have had to register as a sex offender," commented one local resident.

Despite the consternation of local observers, legal analyst Joseph Raspanti explains that plea deals are relatively common in these circumstances.

"I've had many clients in this position and I've negotiated down to something like this. The main thing is she didn't want to be someone who had to be a sex offender reporter for the rest of her life. That was the big benefit she got out of this," he said.
