United States of America (Daily News)- Teacher Arrested For Inappropriate Relationship With Student: A high school English teacher in Louisiana has been arrested for allegedly engaging in an improper relationship with a student.
Rachel Marie Gillespie, a 26-year-old teacher at Jennings High School, was busted Thursday on charges of indecent behavior with a juvenile.
Deputies began investigating the case last week after receiving a complaint from the Jefferson Davis Parish School Board about an alleged relationship between Gillespie and a student.
Deputies were able to gather enough evidence to request a search warrant.
Gillespie was released from the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office after posting her $25,000 bond on Thursday afternoon.
The Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook update that due to conflicts the District Attorney’s office and the 31st Judicial District Judge were recused. The Attorney General’s office and a Special Judge have been appointed to hear the complaint.
The Jefferson Davis Parish Sherriff’s Office and Jennings High School did not return the Daily News’ request for comment.
