DESTREHAN, LA (WVUE) -

A former Destrehan High School teacher, who investigators say admitted to having sex with a 16-year-old, could have her teaching certificate revoked on Wednesday.

Shelley Dufresne already forfeited the certificate in April to avoid trial, jail time and having to register as a sex offender. The state temporarily suspended her license in July, notifying her that revocation hearings would be held in August.

A committee of state educators approved taking away Dufresne’s certificate on Tuesday.

The Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education is expected to approve the action during a meeting on Wednesday.
