Louisiana lunch lady, 38, is arrested for 'molesting boys at parties'

A school lunch lady invited boys as young as 13 to her home for sleepovers, gave them alcohol, let them watch porn and molested them, it is claimed.

Dawn Marie Baye, 38, was arrested and charged over claims she groomed and sexually assaulted multiple boys aged between 13 and 16 while working at Lacache Middle School in Chauvin, Louisiana.   

Some of her victims are said to have attended the school, with Baye’s alleged crimes coming to light after a parent complained on April 21.

Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office conducted multiple interviews and new incest decided to charge Baye after finding the allegations made against her were consistent. 

They discovered Baye had been holding ‘parties’ with her alleged victims at her home, it is claimed.

Deputies said the teen boys went to Bayes home on multiple occasions and consumed alcohol and watched pornography. 

They allege there were multiple sexual encounters involved. The age of consent in Louisiana is 17. 

Baye was subsequently charged with eight counts of indecency with a juvenile, and 10 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. 

Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office refused to comment further when asked how many alleged victims there were, or how exactly the allegations came to light.

During the course of the investigation detectives discovered that the minors would sleep over at Bayes home during the time the parties occurred.  

In a news release, Sheriff Tim Soignet encouraged parents to know where their minor children are and whose home they are going to for a sleep over.

Baye was booked into the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex and her bail was set at $50,000. 

Baye has since bonded out of the jail, and has been fired from her job at her old school,  reported. 

DailyMail.com has contacted the school for further comment. 

A Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman would not say when she is due back in court.
