The indictment accuses the former Logan County Schools teacher of having sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl between Sept. 1 and Feb. 17, when Kentucky State Police opened an investigation. He’s also accused of exchanging explicit photos with a 16-year-old girl and using his cellphone while employed as a teacher to send and receive inappropriate photos with teen girls.

Logan County Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Justin Crocker said the investigation is ongoing. Decker is represented by Tim Hendrix.
