Faces charges of indecent behavior with a student
The former Hahnville High School teacher booked on multiple charges in connection with alleged inappropriate behavior with a student will go to trial on Aug. 15.
Jeremy Eusea, 30, was arrested and charged twice in March of last year.
Between the two arrests, he was charged with prohibited sexual conduct, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile and pornography with a juvenile, as well as computerized solicitation of a minor or texting messages during and after school that included inappropriate conversations and photographs, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.
The Paradis resident was accused of doing this with a 17-year-old student and then of “sexting” with another student, this one 16 years old.
The offenses with the 16-year-old allegedly occurred from Aug. 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011 in St. Charles Parish, according to court records.
In July, Eusea was indicted by a grand jury on the charges.Eusea’s arrests represent the fourth St. Charles Parish educator arrested on charges of inappropriate behavior with students in two years.
Former Destrehan High School teacher Kimberly Naquin was charged with having a sexual relationship with a female student in the parish. This month, she pleaded guilty to inappropriate behavior with the same student in Jefferson Parish. In 2014, Destrehan High School teachers Shelley Dufresne and Rachel Respess were arrested after they were accused of having sex with a student.
Last year, the St. Charles Parish School Board revised system policies on dealing with sexual harassment of students, child abuse and neglect, and electronic communication between employees and students, as well as bullying and harassment.
The Board’s stated goal was to ensure the school system’s policy made clear reference to reporting requirements. Those policies came up for review less than three weeks after Eusea’s arrest and were passed in May.
