CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A Sam Houston High School teacher is accused of inappropriate contact with a student.

According to a news release from Louisiana State Police, on Thursday, investigators with the department's Bureau of Investigations were contacted by a parent concerned about inappropriate contact between their juvenile daughter and a teacher at the Moss Bluff school.

Following an investigation, 37-year-old Lance Duhon, of Lake Charles, was charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile as well as prohibited sexual contact between an educator and student.

Troopers assigned to the Lake Charles office met with the complainant and the complainant's daughter. Troopers said during the interview, the girl alleged that she was involved in a sexual relationship with Duhon.

Troopers said text messages between the girl and Duhon contained explicit sexual content.

"And were indicative of a sexual relationship between the two of them," troopers said in the release.

On Friday, investigators met with Duhon.

"During the interview, Duhon admitted to inappropriate contact with the girl," troopers said.

Duhon was booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center. Bond was set at $11,000.

Troopers said if convicted of both charges, Duhon faces up to a $6,000 fine and up to 7 ½ years in prison.
