Former teacher at Destrehan High School in Louisiana, Shelley Dufresne, 34, was freed of her charges Wednesday. She was accused of taking part in a threesome with a schoolboy and a fellow tutor, reports said.

The former teacher had previously admitted having sex with her 16-year-old English student, who was also in his school's football team, on two occasions in 2014, in Jefferson Parish, a parish in the U.S. state of Louisiana.

Dufresne waived her right to a jury trial, opting instead for a bench trial before the Judge. Most of the first day of the trial Tuesday focused on the victim in this case. The victim's testimony and cross-examination went on for hours and throughout the time, he maintained he had sex with his teacher in Jefferson Parish, WDSU News, an NBC-affiliate, reported.

The illicit relationship between the victim and Dufresne began with simple flirting, a prosecutor said as her trial began Tuesday. Dufresne had created a fake Facebook profile named "Madison Mexicano" with an image of the cartoon character Speedy Gonzalez as the profile photo. They both started sharing messages on the social platform.

However, the casual chats grew into multiple sexual encounters inside Dufresne's vehicle at locations in St. Charles, where she lived, and Jefferson Parish over the course of a month in late summer of 2014, said Assistant District Attorney Rachel Africk. The relationship also included a threesome where the victim, Dufresne, and another English teacher, Rachel Respess , 26, were involved. Africk said the victim also made a video of the act and showed it to his football teammates. Respess is accused of failing to report a felony and will be tried separately, according to reports.

The interaction of a teacher and a student on social media is helpful but it also makes it easier for instructors to prey on children. According to GuardChild — a group founded by concerned parents who wanted to guard their children from Internet bullying — 85 percent of parents with children aged between 13 and 17 say their child has a personal social media page. The organization also says that 67 percent of teenagers surveyed hide their online activity from their parents.
