Teacher feeds pupils cupcakes mixed with husband’s sperm
A teacher was found to have given some children cupcakes laced with her husband’s sperm.
She admitted to the crime following her arrest and now facing prosecution.
The teacher, known as Cynthia Perkins, 36, was also said to have joined her ex-husband, Denis, in raping a minor and producing child pornography.
Until her arrest, Perkins taught at Westside Junior High School in Livingston, Louisiana, where she committed the crime.
She now faces 68 charges for feeding students with the sperm laced pastries and other crimes.
In her show of remorse, Perkins struck a plea deal with the prosecution and will now testify against her ex-husband Dennis. Her decision to plead guilty will see her sentence reduced from 72 years to 41 years in jail.
Her husband, on his part, faces 150 years in jail upon conviction.
Speaking on the matter, state Attorney General Jeff Landry said: ”Today, Cynthia Perkins admitted to her crimes and plead guilty in court
‘She not only waived any right to appeal, and attempt to avoid conviction, but she also spared the victims from reliving her horrific crimes during this particular trial.’
Perkins’ counsel, James Spokes, said they feel the plea deal ‘was the best decision’.
He said: “Cynthia decided this was in her best interest. She feels a lot of remorse over what’s happened.
“We side with her when she says this was the best decision she could make at this time.”
“This is not the kind of case where people are going home happy, but this was the best possible outcome”
