25-year-old teacher charged with raping student
This 25-year-old former Kentucky substitute teacher has been charged with raping a middle school student — including an illicit romp at a hotel, according to WLEX.
Alexandria Allen, a one-time sub at Royal Spring Middle School, was arrested Monday by Georgetown police on three counts of third-degree rape.
According to the arrest warrant, Allen came into contact with the 15-year-old victim when she was in a position of authority or a position of public trust. Police say in a forensic interview, the teen told them he had sex with his 25-year-old teacher.
The alleged rapes occurred at three locations between March and October, including at the Hilton Garden Inn in Georgetown, according to the warrant.
The teenager’s mother raised an alarm and reached out to law enforcement last October when she discovered nude pictures on her son’s mobile phone.
“I was disgusted because you’re supposed to be helping him and she wasn’t helping him at all,” the mother told reporters in October.
During court, Tuesday, Allen’s attorney entered a not guilty plea on her behalf and waived formal arraignment. The judge reduced her bond to $2,500 and ordered no contact with the victim. Allen has no prior criminal record.
She’s due back in court for a preliminary hearing on Feb. 2, according to reports.
Georgetown Assistant Police Chief Darin Allgood confirmed Allen’s arrest on Monday, adding that she may face additional charges.
“She was a substitute teacher at a middle school here in town and that’s how they met,” Allgood told reporters on Wednesday. “We’re pretty confident in the charges that were brought against her.”
Allen, who has no prior criminal record, was no longer listed as in custody at the Scott County Detention Center as of Wednesday. Attempts to reach her were unsuccessful.
“Ms. Allen is prohibited from working in Scott County Schools,” the school said in a statement. “She was hired as a substitute teacher in January of 2020.”
