Another Former Slidell High School Teacher Charged With Inappropriate Relations With Students

The Slidell Police Department has reported that the on-going investigation into a former Slidell High School teacher, 35-year-old Alexa Wingerter, has led to additional charges, and the arrest of a second Slidell High School teacher, 31-year-old, Shelby Cavignac.

Alexa Wingerter was the subject of a lengthy investigation, which began in early March of 2024, regarding allegations that she was having inappropriate relationships with male students at Slidell High School, as well as sending inappropriate photographs and messages via cell phone and by utilizing various social media sites. As a result of the investigation, Wingerter was arrested in late April.

Since the initial arrest, multiple search warrants were executed and Slidell Police investigators found sufficient evidence to support that a second Slidell High School teacher, Shelby Cavignac, was also having inappropriate relationships with students. The new evidence also supported that Wingerter had inappropriate relations with additional students, who were not immediately identified during the initial investigation.

Based on the current facts, a warrant was issued for Cavignac for Prohibited Sexual Conduct Between an Educator and Student. Additionally, three new warrants were issued for Wingerter for (2) counts of Prohibited Sexual Conduct Between an Educator and Student and Indecent Behavior with a Juvenile. Wingerter and Cavignac were both arrested Wednesday (June 26, 2024) on their warrants and booked into the Slidell City Jail.

This investigation is still on-going.
