Rapides Parish teacher accused of having sex with student

Sherry Darrnell Gentle, 25, was arrested at 1:45 p.m. Wednesday, by the Investigative Division of Rapides Parish Sheriffs Office, and was  booked into Rapides Parish Detention Center 1, according to Sheriff Charles F. Wagner, Jr.

Gentle was booked with three counts of Felony Carnal Knowledge of a Juvenile.  Total bond was set at $3,000.

The arrest was the result of a complaint filed by the grandmother of a 15-year-old male, who accused Gentle of  having a sexual relationship with her grandson.  A warrant for Gentle’s arrest was issued on Jan. 6.

Gentle is a teacher at Arthur F. Smith Middle Magnet School.  The boy was in one of Gentle’s classes this school year.

The alleged sex acts occurred at the suspect’s residence located at 5919 Skylark Dr., in Alexandria, and not at any Rapides Parish School.

Gentle was also arrested by RPSO, and booked into Rapides Parish Detention Center 1, on Dec. 14, after a warrant was issued against her, with reference to one count of stalking.  The stalking charge was related to this same case and victim.  Bond was set at $10,000.00 for the stalking charge.  Gentle was released after posting bond, later during the same date.
