Two teachers are accused of having group sex with a student in Louisiana after school officials told authorities the 16-year-old was bragging to his peers.

Police say 32-year-old Shelly Dufresne (doo-FRAYN) and 24-year-old Rachel Respess had sex with the teenager at Respess' apartment in Kenner, outside New Orleans. They teach at nearby Destrehan High School.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/1rQb9CC ) that each has posted bond and left jail as of Thursday.

Dufresne also is accused of having sex with the teenager at her home in Montz.

Both women face charges of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

Authorities say they were tipped last week when school officials told them one student was bragging to others about a sexual relationship with teachers.
