ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - The case against a central Kentucky teacher accused of having sexual relationships with students is now in the hands of the Commonwealth Attorneys' office.
We were told Thursday that no decision has been made if Natalie Gentry, a LaRue County High School English teacher, will face prosecution.
In October, WAVE 3 reported that police believe Gentry has had sex with some of her students at her Hardin County home.
According to LaRue County Schools, Gentry is no longer an employee of the school district.
Thursday afternoon, LaRue County Schools Superintendent Sam Sanders released this statement to WAVE 3 News:
"The teacher was notified in writing on October 24, 2011 of the charges and that her contract with the LaRue County Schools had been terminated (pending her right to request a tribunal hearing concerning the charges)."
Sanders goes on to say, "I have not received a request for a hearing and the timeline has expired. The LaRue County School System has moved forward with the process of hiring of a new teacher. We were able to bring in an excellent substitute teacher (former LaRue County High School/retired English teacher) for the past several weeks, and I'd like to express my appreciation to her."
