Destrehan High School, of St. Charles Parish, Louisiana, is caught up in yet another teacher-student sex scandal.
Kimberly Naquin, a geography teacher, was arrested yesterday and later booked after being charged with carnal knowledge of a juvenile, and a felony charge of prohibited sexual conduct between an educator and a student.
Stevie Crovetto, the Director of Public Information for St. Charles Parish Public Schools, issued this statement Friday morning, according to WGNO:
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.
In October of 2014, Destrehan made national headlines when two teachers, Rachel Respess and Shelley Dufresne, were arrested after being accused of having a threesome with a student during a party after a football game.
According to the school’s website, Naquin teaches AP Human Geography and World Geography and is a graduate of Louisiana State University.
Sheriff Greg Champagne is currently holding a news conference to discuss this arrest. We’ll update this post with his statements as soon as they’re available.
UPDATE: Via WGNO: “Champagne said the student told authorities the relationship began in September of 2014 and continued up until on or about August 2015. The student also told police most of the inappropriate contact happened at Naquin’s home in Kenner, however, some contact happened in a classroom at Destrehan High School and at a home in Destrehan.”
UPDATE 2: The story gets even crazier: Nola.com has verified that Naquin is the daughter of St. Charles Parish School Board President Dennis Naquin. Her Facebook page indicates that her mom, Karen Naquin, is also a teacher in the St. Charles Parish public school system.
