HAMMOND, La. (WGNO) — Former school teacher Morgan Freche, of Loranger, is out on bond after being accused of having a sexual relationship with a male student that resulted in her giving birth to their child.

Freche was arrested on Sunday, Sept. 24, after the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office began investigating a report that a 17-year-old boy may have fathered a child with a school employee.

Although the age of consent for a sexual relationship in Louisiana is 17, investigators believe the relationship began at least two years before the arrest, when the student would have been underage.

Freche faces charges of third-degree rape, felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile and oral sexual battery.

Freche is out on a $155,000 bond and is required to wear an ankle monitor.
