LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Charges against a former Bullitt Central High School teacher have been dismissed.

Crystal Chappell is no longer facing six counts of raping a student in 2014, but the case is likely not over.

Court documents show the judge dismissed the case because necessary witnesses weren't subpoenaed due to a mistake. The prosecutor says there was also an issue with the victim's availability for the trial.

Chappell's attorney says she's expecting a re-indictment once the witnesses are available,

Her attorney says they are disappointed that they were not able to go to trial on Tuesday, but look forward to having a jury decide this case.
