The identity of the victim is unknown. Authorities are not saying what school he attended in order to further protect his identity. The victim is the same person in all counts, reports WKYT.

A school spokesperson, Lisa Deffendall, told WKYT:

While we cannot comment on individual personnel issues, we can assure families and community members that we are aware of the matter. Our personnel protocols in a case like this would call for placing an employee on administrative leave pending resolution.

Though Detective Sparkman told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the allegations against Jarvis “came to light after she left [Woodford County].”


5. Female Educators Make Up a Small Fraction Teacher/Student Sexual Assault Convictions

Slate reported that female educators make up 4 percent of convicted rapists in teacher/student scandals in 2006.
