Trial date set for former WCMS teacher
A former Woodford County Middle School social studies teacher, who has been charged with rape and other crimes against a minor, was scheduled to return to Woodford Circuit Court for a three-day jury trial beginning July 23, 2018.
James Lowery, an attorney representing Lindsey B. Jarvis, told Woodford Circuit Judge Paul Isaacs that he and the commonwealth’s attorney office continue to work on this case and hope to resolve it, but asked for a trial date during a status hearing on Dec. 6.
Jarvis, 27, of Lexington, pleaded not guilty to third-degree rape, third-degree sodomy and third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor (misdemeanor) at her arraignment last July.
Jarvis allegedly engaged in sexual intercourse and deviant sexual intercourse with a male juvenile (younger than 16 years old) in June and May 2016, according to an indictment returned by a Woodford County grand jury.
Jarvis was employed by Woodford County Public Schools for three years. She was a teacher at WCMS through the 2015-16 school year and resigned in May 2016, according to schools Superintendent Scott Hawkins.
Jarvis was scheduled to return to Woodford Circuit Court for a status hearing on June 6, 2018.
