LEXINGTON, KY — 27-year-old teaching assistant Lindsey Jarvis was arrested by Lexington police on Friday, in trouble for allegedly having sex with a student "under the age of 16." The exact age of the victim was not given in court documents.
Today in Lexington District Court, Jarvis pleaded not guilty to the charges brought against her which include two counts of third degree rape, one count of third degree sodomy and one count of unlawful transaction with a minor.
Jarvis was a teacher's aide at Veterans Park Elementary School at the time of her arrest. Her previous job was teaching social studies at Woodford County Middle School.
The investigation into Jarvis' conduct began in January 2017 and involves one student only. Detectives say the victim's cell phone contained damning evidence of a sexual relationship between the two.
Jarvis is married and her husband was by her side in the courtroom today. Facing the judge, Jarvis appeared stoic. She is currently free on bail.
