OLDHAM COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A former Jefferson County Public School teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student pleaded not guilty in an Oldham County courtroom Thursday.

On June 18, an Oldham County grand jury indicted Jessica Boyers, 24, on 19 charges of unlawful transaction with a minor, 8 charges of 2nd degree rape and 11 charges of sexual abuse involving a student.

Boyers is also facing charges in Jefferson County after Louisville Metro Police said they found her and a student parked in Boyers' car at Buechel Park the night of April 11. According to police, the minor informed officers he was Boyers' student and had a sexual relationship with the married teacher.

Boyers taught at Highland Middle School until she was accused of sexually assaulting a student in April. She resigned from her position in JCPS after charges were filed.
