This may be the official new low bar for female teacher and student sex scandals. At least if the bar is set by age of the boy involved.
Deidre R. Smith, a grade school teacher in Louisiana, was arrested this week on charges of raping a 10-year-old student in her class. The married mother of three was specifically called out for sexual intercourse with the boy. You may not say it: wow, that seems young.
Deidre Smith Taught at the Lake Charles Charter Academy
On April 30th, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office received word from administrators at Smith’s school about their teacher possibly having inappropriate relations with one of her 10-year-old students. The origin of the tipoff to school administrators remains unknown at this time.
Sheriff’s investigated and discovered that Smith had not only illicit contact with the boy since 2018, but that that contact included full sexual intercourse.
Smith was promptly arrested and charged with 1st degree felony rape of a child, along with indecent behavior with a child for everything not involving the intercourse. Smith was granted $50,000 bond, which is quite high by Louisiana standards. She was out the same day.
Smith Fits the Profile of Female Teacher Sexual Predator of Late
While the age of the boy is quite unique as to how young, the demographic profile is quite typical to the cases we’ve seen for several years now.
Deidre R. Smith is 34, Caucasian, married, with children. This millennial-aged female teacher seems most inclined to end up becoming intimately involved with her students. Perhaps a combination of being digital communications savvy and feeling needy in her own personal relationship and family situation.
To be honest, nobody has nailed the root cause of this massive rise in female teacher sex cases, though access to social media and direct digital messaging play a good part in the evolution of the secret relationships.
The personal desires and forwardness of this particular generation of women, or perhaps the types of women now drawn to teaching, seems to correlate to the rest.
Either way, Smith is now facing some very serious prison time if convicted on rape. A mom and wife about to be gone.
Smith Is Hardly Alone in Louisiana Female Sex Crimes of Late
In particular, Louisiana is one of those states where we’ve seen numerous attractive young female teachers busted for having sex with one, two, or even three of their students:
This past December, female athletic coach and trainer, Loralyn Huval, was arrested in Opelousas for sex with what we presumed to be a female student at her school.
Kimberly Naquin of Destrehan High School pleaded guilty in 2017 to having sex, a lot of sex, with a sixteen year old female student; this very same high school the site of an arrest of two female teachers but a year earlier for having sex with a sixteen year old boy.
Young and married hottie high school teacher, Rachel Marie Gillespie was charged with sex with an under 17 boy at Jennings High School.
