Former Fayette educator sentenced in second county in student rape case

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- According to the Herald-Leader, former Fayette County educator Lindsey Banta Jarvis was sentenced Friday to one year in jail for third-degree rape of a male student younger than 16.

The Fayette Circuit Court sentence on a charge of third-degree rape will run concurrently with an 18-month sentence Jarvis received Wednesday in Woodford County on charges of third-degree rape and third-degree sodomy with the same student.

The newspaper says 28-year-old Jarvis was scheduled to begin serving her sentence Friday night when she reports to the Woodford County jail.

Jarvis pleaded guilty in September to charges in both Fayette and Woodford counties.

Jarvis was a former teacher’s aide at Veterans Park Elementary School. She also worked in the Woodford County school district as a social studies teacher.
