Crime School Lunch Lady Hosted 'Sexual Encounters' With Teens at Sleepovers, Police Say
With virtual reality police training, Sacramento tries to 'get to a much better place'
With police training programs across the country under intense scrutiny after Derek Chauvin's murder conviction, one department in California is using several high-profile police killings of Black Americans as it trains the next generation of officers to better anticipate and respond to high-risk encounters. © Julia Vargas Jones/CNN Sacramento Police Department officers experience real-life police encounters adapted for virtual reality training. The Sacramento Police Department's training techniques have been largely shaped by the police killing of Stephon Clark, a 22-year-old Black man, in the city in 2018.
A former cafeteria worker at Lacache Middle School in Chauvin, Louisiana, has been arrested on multiple charges of indecent behavior with a juvenile and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile for allegedly hosting parties and sleepovers with teenage boys at her home.
The occasions allegedly entailed "sexual encounters" as well as the consumption of alcohol and the viewing of pornography, according to the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office (TPSO).

Dawn Marie Baye, 38, of Chauvin, was arrested following several weeks into an investigation launched by the TPSO after it received a complaint from a concerned parent of one of the children involved.
According to the TPSO, on April 21 "deputies received information that multiple juveniles had gone to an adult female's house on several occasions whereas they consumed alcoholic beverages and watched pornography movies; furthermore, that there were sexual encounters. The ages of the boys were between 13 and 16 years of age.
"During the investigation, detectives learned that there were sleepovers at the adult female's residence during the time that these parties occurred."
Baye met some of the victims at the school where she worked. Following several interviews, "the facts of this investigation [were] very consistent along with... information that was shared on social media," the sheriff's office said.
Groups say gunshot detection systems unreliable, seek review
CHICAGO (AP) — The gunshot detection system that set in motion the recent fatal police shooting of a 13-year-old boy in Chicago routinely reports gunshots where there are none, sending officers into predominantly Black and Latino neighborhoods for “unnecessary and hostile” encounters, community groups argued in a court filing Monday. The groups and the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern University's law school asked a Cook County judge to scrutinize the ShotSpotter system to determine if it is “sufficiently trustworthy” to be allowed as evidence in a criminal case.
Baye was interviewed by the TPSO on April 30 and later arrested for 10 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and eight counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile.
She was booked into the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex and her bond was set at $50,000, the TPSO said.
Those with information relating to this investigation are being directed to contact the TPSO detectives at 1-985-876-2500.
"Sheriff Tim Soignet encourages parents to know where their minor children are and whose residence they are going to for a sleepover," the TPSO said.
Terrebonne Parish School District Superintendent Philip Martin told Louisiana's The Times of Houma | Thibodaux that Baye no longer works for the district.
Newsweek has contacted the Terrebonne Parish School District and Lacache Middle School for comment.

Prosecutors: Suspects tailed Lady Gaga's dog walker
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Three men drove around the Hollywood area in late February, on the prowl for expensive French bulldogs to steal, prosecutors said. Their night would end in gunfire — and the violent theft of pop star Lady Gaga’s beloved pets. The robbery would prompt headlines around the world — and motivate the owners of French bulldogs to be wary during walks — with few clues made public about the case or the circumstances surrounding the dogs' disappearance. The felony complaint, filed by prosecutors Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by The Associated Press on Monday, gives some new details about the attack and what preceded it.
The lawsuit claimed that Kyle Jarred Wroblewski sexually abused the teenager on multiple occasions over several months when she was 16 years old, and the district was negligent in taking actions to protect the student, The Oregonian reported at the time.
