LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Jefferson County Public School teacher charged with rape faced a judge Thursday morning.

Scott Quisenberry plead not guilty to rape charges of second and third degree rape involving a minor. He was arrested Saturday on a bench warrant.

The Commonwealth's Attorney said Quisenberry engaged in sexual intercourse with a teenage girl. Court documents indicate the alleged rape took place from the time the girl was 13 years old until the time she was 15.

According to court records, the allegations date from March 2009 through March 2012. During the time of the allegations, Quisenberry was a teacher at the victim's school, according to court papers. According to Eric Farris, an attorney for Bullitt County Schools, Quisenberry was employed at Bullitt Lick Middle in Shepherdsville when his conduct came into question.

Quisenberry is a 2nd grade teacher at Kerrick Elementary. He has been placed on non-instructional duty during the investigation.
