On April 30, 2019, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office received a complaint from an administrator at Lake Charles Charter Academy regarding a teacher, Deidre R. Smith, of Sulphur, who was possibly having an inappropriate relationship with one of her 10 year old students.

During the initial investigation detectives learned Smith was having inappropriate contact with the boy since the end of 2018 and had had sexual intercourse with the victim.

Smith was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with 1st degree rape and felony indecent behavior with a juvenile.

She was released later the same day on a $50,000 bond.

The case is still under investigation and more charges are likely.
