KENNER, La. – Two high school teachers in Louisiana have been arrested after police say they had group sex with a student.

Shelley Dufresne and Rachel Respess, both English teachers at Destrehan High School, surrendered to police on charges of having a threesome with an unidentified 16-year-old student.

Dufresne, 32, was arrested on Tuesday for having sexual contact with the boy at her home which she shares with her husband and three children. Respess, 24, surrendered to police on Wednesday evening.

The encounter reportedly happened after a high school football game in September.

The Times-Picayune says police were tipped off to the allegations last week when the male student was "bragging to other students that he was having a sexual relationship with teachers."

According to the The Times-Picayune, both Dufresne and Respess were released from jail on Thursday morning after posting bail.

Police are now investigating whether a video was made of the tryst.

The teachers, if convicted, could face up to 17 1/2 years in prison.
