A former Kentucky substitute teacher has been charged with raping an eighth-grade student — including an illicit romp at a hotel, according to a report.
Alexandria Allen, a 25-year-old onetime sub at Royal Spring Middle School, was arrested Monday by Georgetown police on three counts of third-degree rape, WLEX reported.
An arrest warrant obtained by the station alleges Allen came in contact with the 15-year-old boy at the school while in a position of authority or public trust. He no longer attends the school, police said.
The alleged rapes occurred at three locations between March and October, including at the Hilton Garden Inn in Georgetown, according to the warrant.
The teen’s mother reached out to cops in October after finding nude photos and videos of Allen and her son on his cellphone. The mother told police at the time that Allen was her son’s tutor, WLEX reported.
“I was disgusted because you’re supposed to be helping him and she wasn’t helping him at all,” the woman told the station in October.
An attorney for Allen entered a not guilty plea on her behalf Tuesday while waiving her formal arraignment, WLEX reported.
A judge also reduced Allen’s bond to $2,500 and ordered her not to contact the victim. She’s due back in court for a preliminary hearing on Feb. 2, according to the report.
Georgetown Assistant Police Chief Darin Allgood confirmed Allen’s arrest on Monday, adding that she may face additional charges.
“She was a substitute teacher at a middle school here in town and that’s how they met,” Allgood told The Post Wednesday. “We’re pretty confident in the charges that were brought against her.”
Allen, who has no prior criminal record, was no longer listed as in custody at the Scott County Detention Center as of Wednesday. Attempts to reach her were unsuccessful.
A message seeking additional comment Wednesday from Scott County Schools was not immediately returned.
