GRAY, LA (WVUE) - A former Terrebonne Parish high school teacher who was arrested for allegedly having a sexual encounter with a student and intentionally exposing him to AIDS is jailed on a $1 million bond, according to Sheriff Jerry Larpenter.
The intentional exposure charge was announced Thursday, and an additional bond of $500,000 on that charge was set Friday, doubling the original amount. The investigation is ongoing, Larpenter said.
Initially, police arrested 37-year-old Derrick Nesby, a teacher and boys track coach at H.L. Bourgeois High School, after receiving a complaint that he was sexually involved with a 16-year-old boy at the school. Terrebonne Parish detectives brought Nesby in for questioning on May 9, and he was later released.
After further investigation, TPSO detectives obtained a warrant for Nesby's arrest on May 28 for carnal knowledge of a juvenile. Nesby was arrested at H.L. Bourgeois High School while he picked up his personal belongings.
Nesby denies the accusations.
