Bond is now set for a substitute teacher accused of having sex with a 10th grade student.

According to the St. Landry Parish Clerk of Court’s Office, a judge set Constance Robertson’s bond at $10,000 Tuesday morning. We called the St. Landry Parish Jail and Robertson has not bonded out.

On Monday, Robertson was arrested and booked on charges of Felony Carnal Knowledge of a Juvenile.

The alleged incident happened in a classroom at school on a pep rally day, Port Barre Police Chief Deon Boudreaux said.  The student had video of the alleged incident, and was showing it to other students. The information made its way to the school administrators, who called police.

That same day, Port Barre police executed a search warrant to recover and view the contents of the student’s phone. Evidence extracted from the phone lead to Robertson’s arrest, the chief said.

The student was 16 at the time of the incident. The teacher told police she thought he was 18, the chief said.
