Police say the epic nine-hour ménage à trois featured a 16-year-old male student along with Shelley Dufresne and another teacher, Rachel Respess. The two teachers, now formerly teachers, worked at Destrehan High School in the suburbs of New Orleans.

Dufresne is a 32 year old married mother of three, and Respess is 23.

Prosecutors said the sexual relationship started with some flirting between the teachers and the teen, and soon escalated into all imaginable forms of sex including oral sex Their meetings often occurred within Dufresne’s Honda Pilot.

A district court judge, Danyelle Taylor entered a finding of not guilty against Dufresne.

Judge Taylor, based her criminal trial finding of reasonable doubt on a lack of evidence provided by local investigators and her belief that the male teen, the primary witness at trial, was unreliable, reports The Times-Picayune.

“I do not believe that the threshold has been met by the evidence presented to this court,” the judge said. She also described the teen as having a “braggadocious nature” and a “propensity to lie.”

The judge conceded that Dufresne probably did have sex with the teenager. And stated, “She betrayed a very basic public trust as a school teacher.”

However, the case in Judge Taylor’s courtroom turned largely on the location of all the sex. Was it in Jefferson Parish, where Taylor presides, or was it in St. Charles Parish, the next parish over?

The public is understandably outraged at the not guilty verdict.
