A married teacher has landed in hot water for falling in love with a student. She is facing charges for having carnal knowledge, sodomizing and raping the 16-year-old boy, reports confirm.
She has been charged for sodomizing the boy in May, 2016, and having carnal knowledge of him the following month.
Lindsey Banta Jarvis was arrested after her indecent romantic relationship became an open secret.
She had a company in court, but his identity was not revealed.
According to a report from WKYT, the 27-year-old teacher worked as a Social Studies teacher at Woodford County Middle School in Kentucky.
In her confessional statement, the pretty woman admitted to having sex with her prey whose mobile telephone had evidence of the unlawful relationship.
Jarvis was arrested by police in Lexington.
She pleaded not guilty to two counts of rape on Monday.
However, she stands accused for ‘rape, sodomy and unlawful transaction with a minor.’
Her previous job was at Veterans Park Elementary School, Woodford, where she worked as a Teaching Assistant from August 2013 to June 2016. She resigned from the job last Friday, and was coincidentally arrested the same day.
Steve Sparkman, a detective with the Versailles Police Department, told the Lexington Herald-Ledger that investigations into the crime began at the beginning of the year, but she was not charged until last week “because investigations take a while.”
Sparkman added: “There are so many dots you have to connect before you can bring charges against a person.
“All this came to light after she left here.”
The identity of Jarvis’ sexual assault victim has been kept secret for security reasons. No mention was made of which school he attended.

“While we cannot comment on individual personnel issues, we can assure families and community members that we are aware of the matter. Our personnel protocols in a case like this would call for placing an employee on administrative leave pending resolution,” said Veterans Park school spokesperson Lisa Deffendall.
“It’s possible that the unlawful transactions happened to two separate counties,” Sparkman told WTVQ.
Earlier in June, Dayton Daily News wrote a report on Erin McAuliffe, a 25-year-old teacher from Rocky Mount who was arrested for having sex with 3 boys, including a threesome with two of the underage victims.
Two were 17-year-old students while one was only 16.
On 8 June, she was charged with three counts of “sexual activity” and “indecent liberties.”
Another female teacher in Texas also faced the laws for similar offenses in April.
