YOUR TURN: Teacher Shelly Dufresne

Air: Friday, April 10, 2015

This week's “Your Turn” segment goes to Jessie Loyd. Loyd is one of dozens of people on our Facebook page who commented about the plea deal given to the Destrehan teacher who had sex with a 16-year-old student. 

Many people reacted angrily because they believed Shelley Dufresne got a light sentence because she was a woman. Others thought she benefited because her father is a judge. 

Loyd and others didn't like the result. In her words: You know this is very sad. Let a man do what she has done and they would be so happy to throw him into prison for a life sentence and register him as a sex offender, but because she's a woman, oh, just a slap on the hand will do. God this world is so messed up. God bless her heart! 

That's Jessie Loyd's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
