MOSS BLUFF, La. - A teacher at Sam Houston High School has been arrested, accused of having inappropriate contact with a student.

Louisiana State Police say the girl, during questioning, confirmed being involved in a sexual relationship with the teacher.  The teacher is identified as 37-year-old Lance Duhon of Lake Charles.

State police say text messages between the girl and Duhon contained explicit sexual content and "were indicative of a sexual relationship between the two."

On Friday, investigators say Duhon admitted to inappropriate contact with the girl. He was booked with indecent behavior with a juvenile and prohibited sexual contact between an educator and student.

Bond was set at $11,000. If convicted of both charges, he faces up to 7 1/2 years in prison and a $6,000 fine.

It was not immediately known whether Duhon had an attorney.
