A teacher at Sam Houston High School admitted to having sexual contact with a student, state police said.
Lance Duhon, 37, was arrested Friday and charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile and prohibited sexual contact between an educator and student, said Troop D spokesman Sgt. James Anderson.
Duhon was booked into Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center on $11,000 bond.
State police investigators were contacted Thursday by parents concerned about “inappropriate contact” between Duhon and their juvenile daughter, Anderson said.
The girl confirmed she was in a sexual relationship with Duhon and Duhon admitted during an interview Friday to inappropriate contact with her, Anderson said.
Explicit text messages between the girl and Duhon were indicative of a sexual relationship, he said.
If convicted of both charges, Duhon faces up to a $6,000 fine and up to 7 1/2 years in prison.

It takes a sick person to do something like that to a child. People remember it takes to two tangle. I don't even know this coach but he's not the only one to blame. Sad to say but sorry!!

Im sure he will get out of it like his dad and unkles have always done. When you know the right people , thats all you need. Logan if it was your daughter im sure you would not think he is such a great guy. Put yourself in the parents shoes. He is 37 and she is in scholl, give me a break. If it was my daughter they would not have to prosecute, I would do it myself.
