Louisiana Substitute Teacher Gets Probation for Sex with Students
Back in 2016, Terrebonne Parish substitute teacher Heidi Marie Domangue was arrested on charges of indecent behavior with a juvenile under 13 and three counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile. The latest news came as quite a shock to the mothers of the young boys involved in the incident. According to KNOE, Domangue (who also goes by the alias Heidi Verret) will not only avoid jail time - she would legally be able to teach again.
According to the report, prosecutors offered the 32 year old educator a plea deal. The deal reduced the charges leveled against the substitute teacher, and traded out the felony charges for misdemeanors. In exchange for admitting to "having sex with two children and sending lewd texts to a child under 13," Domangue will be ordered to serve 2 years of of probation, but will not have to register as a sex offender. That means she could be legally hired as a teacher anywhere.
The mothers of the minors Domangue had sex with want the law changed so that parents of children involved in these kinds of cases would not only be notified of a plea deal before it's offered - they get a say in the terms as well.
