Who is Alexa Wingerter? Slidell Teacher Arrested for Having S*x with Teen Student

Alexa Wingerter, 35, is a teacher with Slidell High School who was arrested Tuesday for having a relationship with an 18-year-old student.

Wingerter, who has been with the school since 2020 and taught fine arts survey and career development, is charged with Prohibited S*xual Conduct between an Educator and Student and Unlawful Purchase of Alcoholic Beverages on Behalf of Persons Under 21.

Wingerter is also accused of sending inappropriate photos of herself to her victims.

A St. Tammany Parish public school district spokesperson, Meredith Mendez, said Tuesday that Wingerter is no longer a district employee.

The Slidell Police Department said: “In early March, the Slidell Police Department launched an investigation after receiving complaints that Wingerter was having inappropriate relationships with male students at Slidell High School; as well as sending inappropriate photographs and messages via text message, and by utilizing various social media sites.

“Over the course of the past month, Slidell Police investigators conducted multiple interviews and executed several search warrants.

“As a result, investigators found sufficient evidence to support that Wingerter was involved in an inappropriate and s*xual relationship with at least one 18-year-old male student, as she acted in the capacity of the student’s educator.

“Evidence was also found that Wingerter was purchasing alcohol for her students at local bars in Slidell,”

The investigation remains ongoing. Slidell police are asking anyone with additional information to contact Detective Scott O’Shaughnessy at [email protected] or 985-646-4348.

St. Tammany Parish schools Superintendent Frank Jabbia said in a statement that the district is cooperating fully with police.

“Any allegations of inappropriate conduct are taken very seriously and are reported directly to law enforcement officials. We have strict policies in place to ensure that any behavior compromising the safety of our students is not tolerated,” Jabbia said.
