JCPS teacher accused of inappropriate relationship may avoid trial

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The attorneys for a Jefferson County Public School teacher accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student say he may not have to go to trial.

Scott Quisenberry, age 55, is charged with rape in Jefferson and Nelson Counties. He's accused of having a sexual relationship with a female student over a three-year span ranging from when the girl was 13 to 15.

Prosecutor Alicia Gomez offered a plea deal in court, but still needs to put it in writing. She says she doesn't want him to be on probation.

But first, she has to hand over evidence to the defense -- including new information from an interview with the alleged victim yesterday.

"Essentially, there are pictures of them together that were on the computer," Gomez said. "I'm going to turn those over. There's his cell phone records as well."

She says those pictures were not inappropriate in nature.

A no-contact order with the alleged victim is in place. Quisenberry is on non-instructional leave from his teaching job at Kerrick Elementary. He will be back in court late next month, when a trial date could be set.
