LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Nearly two years after Scott Quisenberry was accused of raping one of his former students, JCPS has officially terminated his employment.

Quisenberry was found guilty of three counts of rape and four counts of sodomy on July 20; the jury recommended a 15-year sentence on on July 21.

Quisenberry had a three-year sexual relationship with one of his former students, starting when she was 12 years old, when he was the girl's teacher at Bullitt Lick Middle School..

He later went to work at Kerrick Elementary School in Jefferson County, until he was arrested, and was placed on non-instructional duties and continued to earn his $65,000 salary, pending the outcome of the criminal case. Now that Quisenberry is a convicted felon, JCPS has officially terminated his employment.
