Former Kentucky HS teacher accused of having sex with 17-year-old student
A former Kentucky high school teacher was arrested and charged Thursday for allegedly having sex with a 17-year-old year student, authorities said.
Mollie Verkamp, 27, admitted to police that about two years ago she slept with a former student from a high school outside Boone County, according to a press release from the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.
Cops had been investigating Verkamp for a year, opening up their probe to look into a separate claim that the ex-teacher sent sexually explicit videos to an 18-year-old student at Walton Verona High School, where she most recently taught.
It was while probing those allegations that Verkamp allegedly told authorities she had also sent illicit messages to a 17-year-old student at her last teaching job.
Verkamp then confessed to also having sex with the minor at her home in Boone County, authorities said.
She was indicted on Thursday by a Boone County Grand Jury on rape and sodomy charges.
Her bond has been set at $10,000.
