The month-long affair began with a Facebook message from Dufresne after the teen was out sick one day in Augusthe testified, and quickly progressed to the student and teacher kissing in a classroom within days. She has pleaded not guilty to two counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, the Times-Picayune reports.

The night of their first tryst began, the teen said, when Dufresne picked up the teen from his home in the New Orleans suburb of Destrehan after a football scrimmage. He testified that the teacher then drove to an isolated location behind a daiquiri shop, where they had sex.

The torrid romps culminated, the teen testified, with a threesome with another former Destrehan High School English teacher, year-old Rachel Respess, at her apartment in Kenner. The teen also said he recorded video of Respess while she slept after the threesome and admitted to the court that his genitals could be seen in the footage.
