LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The alleged victim and her mother took the stand Monday in the trial of a JCPS teacher accused of raping a former student. The mother said Scott Quisenberry became obsessed with her daughter. She says he would attend all of her sporting events and would ask if she could spend the night.

The 19-year-old alleged victim has been on the stand for three days. Quisenberry was the girl's teacher at Bullitt Lick Middle School, before working at Kerrick Elementary for JCPS. The alleged victim says she was friends with Quisenberry's daughter -- and spent the night at his house nearly 40 times. She says the relationship escalated to sex.

Investigators say the crimes allegedly happened when the girl was 12-years-old in 2009 and continued until she was 15. Her mother says at first, she considered Quisenberry family since she and the defendant worked together and their kids were close. But after seeing inappropriate text messages she told her priest and he alerted authorities. She got emotional talking about her daughter.

The mother says her daughter is "sweet, beautiful, naive. She is the only child and grandchild on both sides."

The mom goes on to say that her daughter lived in a bubble, explaining, "Her father and I watched what she watched on TV. We monitored that." She also described her daughter as "modest" including the way she dressed.

Quisenberry is charged with three counts of rape and four counts of sodomy. He's on non-instructional duties with JCPS and is still making a $65,000 salary, pending the outcome of the criminal charges.

The Prosecution says it still has to call seven more witnesses before the defense will present its case.
