LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jessica Boyers appeared before a judge at the Oldham County courthouse Thursday afternoon.

She entered a guilty plea for charges of rape and sexual abuse.

Boyers was first accused of having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old back in 2013 when she was a teacher at Highland Middle School in Louisville.

Police say they found Boyers and the boy in her car at Buechel Park.

Similar charges were then filed in Oldham county involving the same teen.

In court Thursday, Boyers waived her rights to a trial by pleading guilty and received a 12 year sentence.

Neither attorney would comment because Boyers still has to go before a judge Friday morning in Jefferson county.

Her formal sentencing is set for May 7.
