An ex-cop and a teacher are said to have served cupcakes to students who were peppered with sperm, a lawsuit alleges.
Dennis Perkins, 44, and Cynthia Perkins, 34, have been charged, including rape and 60 counts of pornography production involving a young person under the age of 13.
Police were notified of the couple after a joint investigation with the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation (LBI), the Louisiana State Police and the Sheriff’s Office of Livingston Parish.
Court documents describe the graphic allegations against the couple, including “photoshopped depictions of children in sexually suggestive positions with Dennis Perkins,” and a youthful “rape fantasy” found on Cynthia’s phone.
The couple were arrested in October, and a number of lawsuits involving the couple have since been filed.
Four different lawsuits filed since November allege that Dennis put sperm in a batch of cupcakes that Cynthia served to her students, The Advocate reports.
Other cupcakes are said to have been served to students in November 2018 and May 2019, with the most recent lawsuit filed against the couple filed last Monday.
The claim claims that Cynthia gave a child sperm treats and showed the child explicit photos.
Cynthia has since quit her job and Dennis was fired on the day of his arrest, local news channel WAFB reported.
Attorney General Jeff Landry said in a statement that Cynthia was charged with 60 counts of pornography production involving a child under the age of 13, and two counts of first-degree rape.
Dennis received the same allegations, and in addition to three times possession of pornography involving a child under the age of 13, two video voyeurism and two obscenity.
James Spokes, a lawyer representing Cynthia Perkins, sent a statement to the WAFB last month regarding the allegations.
Mr. Spokes said, “Regarding these 404 (b) allegations against Dennis, we believe they represent a long history of predatory and controlling behavior towards victims.
“Regarding the few allegations that refer to Cynthia, they are being taken out of context and are unfair, misleading and confusing to a jury.
“We dispute the admissibility of this evidence and a hearing will be held about it.”
