Choice cuts from Acadiana's news media for Friday, Feb. 7, 2014:
Bad, bad teacher
While a teacher at Eunice High, Jacqueline Frugé became a little too comfortable with one of her students, so much so that she sent him a series of risque text messages and partially nude photos. Naturally, those photos found their way to a social media site, resulting in Frugé’s termination and arrest. Though she was originally charged with Prohibited Sexual Contact between an Educator and a Student, on Tuesday, according to this report by KATC TV3, Frugé pleaded guilty to misdemeanor obscenity, and instead of jail time was sentenced to three years probation.
Big bust in Kaplan
For Jarrod Francis, running a stop sign Thursday night in Kaplan with a vehicle jam-packed with narcotics proved to be a bad move. Spotted by Kaplan Police, Francis was pulled over, and perhaps knowing the situation wouldn’t end well, decided to run for it. According to this report from Vermilion Today, a chase ensued, and Francis was eventually apprehended about two blocks away. After a search of the vehicle, officers located over 22 grams of crystal meth valued at $1,200, and a large stash of marijuana. Francis didn’t go easily either, and after making threats on the officers’ lives, he also tried to boot out the windows of the unit, though unsuccessfully.
Former St. Landry registrar arrested again
If things could get worse for former St. Landry Parish Registrar of Voters John Moreau, well, they just did, the Acadiana Advocate reports here. After resigning his position last month after being arrested for vandalizing a courthouse worker’s car, Moreau, on Thursday, was arrested again, this time for stalking the same victim, who according to earlier media reports, was a former lover of the former registrar. According to the Advocate, Moreau’s arrest Thursday resulted from him leaving letters on the doorstep of the victim’s home. “The victim found the contents of the letters to be offensive, insulting and degrading,” St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office Capt. Megan Vizena says in a press release.
