Leesville teacher's aide sentenced for sex with student
A female teacher's aide who admitted having sex with a 15-year-old student has been sentenced to seven years at hard labor, with four years of that suspended.
Kendra Hoffpauir pleaded guilty in Vernon Parish to two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile and one of carnal knowledge. She also had been charged on four counts of contributing to juvenile delinquency, a third count of carnal knowledge, and one of oral sexual battery.
The Leesville Daily Leader reports that District Judge Jim Mitchell sentenced her last week, setting the three sentences to run simultaneously. He also fined her $1,000 on each charge.
Hoffpauir worked for Vernon Middle School when she was arrested. Some charges involved students at Leesville Junior High, where she had worked earlier.
