(Gretna, Louisiana) A 24-year-old teacher at J.D. Meisler Middle School, Stephanie Giambelluca, has been arrested for molesting a 12-year-old student. Giambelluca allegedly behaved indecently with the boy and it was videotaped by a friend, 18-year-old Ryan Mapes.
According to Mapes' arrest report, the 12-year-old was in his care Dec. 14 at the boy's house. Mapes allegedly allowed the teacher to come to the home, according to the report. Before she arrived, Mapes set up a video camera in the living room. Once the teacher got there, she and the 12-year-old went into another room, the report said. It was not known Wednesday whether anything occurred in the room.Giambelluca was booked for molestation of a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Mapes was booked for molestation of a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile, possessing sexually explicit images involving a juvenile and distributing drugs to a person younger than 18. Both are in custody at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna.
When they returned, Mapes gave the boy one Xanax, a prescription anxiety medication that he took from the teacher's purse, the report said. The woman then took off all of her clothing except for her underwear and performed a sexually suggestive dance for the boy. Then the woman performed oral sex on Mapes in front of the boy, who talked to both of them during the act, the report said.
It was not known who reported the incident to the Sheriff's Office, but detectives have the videotape, the report said.
