Let’s all talk about 26-year-old English teacher Rachel Marie Gillespie. Gillespie, who is also the assistant softball coach at Jennings High School, was recently arrested after having a sexual relationship with one of her students.
Louisiana English Teacher Arrested For Having Sexual Relationship With Student
It all fell apart for Gillespie after the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office received a complaint, which led to an investigation being launched. And well, what the police discovered was enough for them to put handcuffs on the teacher.
On August 22, deputies received a call from the school board, stating that a Jennings High School employee was alleged to have had an improper relationship with a student, stated Ivey. An investigation was initiated and information gathered led detectives to request an arrest warrant. Due to conflicts, the District Attorney’s Office and 31st Judicial District Judge have recused themselves.
And instead of teaching English and how to hit a ball to a bunch of spoiled brats, Gillespie was clearly a tad busy getting a little hands-on with one of her students. The gender and the age of the student have not been revealed.
Gillespie is being accused of indecent behavior with a juvenile and was booked into the parish jail on a $25,000 bond.
And that’s the story of why Gillespie never taught another student again.
