Tioga High teacher facing additional sex charges

ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - A Rapides Parish high school teacher, who was arrested last month on charges of having a sexual relationship with a student, now is facing nine additional charges.

27-year-old Heather Michelle Cooksey was arrested Tuesday and later released on a $35,000 bond.

Rapides Parish sheriff's deputies say Cooksey faces two counts of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, four counts of prohibited sexual conduct between an educator and a student, two counts of sexual battery by fondling and one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Cooksey, an English teacher at Tioga High School, originally was arrested Dec. 19 on two counts of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

It was unclear whether Cooksey has an attorney.
