A 28-year-old Lake Charles-area woman faces a bevy of charges after Louisiana police said she repeatedly had sex with a 13-year-old boy who she met at the Bible camp where she was a teacher/aide.
According to the Sulphur Daily News, Heather Daughdrill initiated the relationship in June and it continued until a complaint was filed in October. After her arrest on November 29, police told the paper that Daughdrill would pick her victim up from school without his parents' knowledge and subject him to sexual encounters. Louisiana cops also reportedly found sexually explicit texts between Daughdrill and her victim.
Daughdrill's laundry list of charges, in that weird Napoleonic code they use across the Sabine River: Four counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, eight counts of sexual battery, three counts of 2nd-degree kidnapping; one count contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile (for the hooky-sex, we presume); and one count indecent behavior with a juvenile.
Calcasieu Parish officials say they will also be tacking on another charge of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile and their counterparts in Beauregard Parish will be adding three more counts of 2nd-degree kidnapping, all of which are in relation to the same 13-year-old boy.
Calcasieu Parish Judge Clayton Davis set her bond at $47,000. (Sheeeeeeiiiiitttt.) Her bond in Beauregard Parish has been set at $200,000.
Here's a news-type video Daughdrill made hyping a Lake Charles arts event two years ago.
