LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Bullitt County Public Schools custodian has been arrested and charged with child sex abuse.

Kentucky State Police arrested Jesse Bray on Monday.

According to an arrest report, Bray had sexual contact with a girl under the age of 16 between Aug. 11, 2014 to Aug. 10, 2016. The victim told police, when she was either 13 or 14 she was in a swimming pool with Bray and he groped her on intimate areas of her body, placed his hand under her bathing suit and penetrated her.

The investigation began back in November. At that time, the district reassigned Bray so he would no longer be working around students.

The district said all of the allegations happened off school property.

Now that he’s been arrested, Bray, who has worked for the district for 18 years, has been suspended without pay. A memo was sent to all students, staff and parents.

It’s not known when he’ll be arraigned.
