Former Clarksville teacher sentenced for attempted child exploitation

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A former Clarksville High School teacher will spend two years on home incarceration for asking students for nude pictures.

A judge sentenced Scott Schermerhorn Thursday in Jeffersonville. 

He'll also have to spend a year on probation and be placed on the sex offender registry.

In March, he pleaded guilty to attempted child exploitation. Police arrested him in 2015, and the district fired him a month later. He admitted asking teen students to text him nude pictures.
