BATON ROUGE - The state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education has voted to revoke the certificate of a former Destrehan High School teacher who had sex with a 16-year-old student. 

The full board took the action against Shelley Dufresne Wednesday.

Dufresne forfeited her teaching certificate after an April 9 plea to one count of misdemeanor obscenity. That plea agreement allowed her to avoid a trial and jail.

Dufresne was sentenced to 90 days in a mental health facility. If she fails to complete the mental health program by the end of August, she must report to the St. Charles Parish jail Sept. 1 to serve the remainder of her time.
