LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Lexington school employee accused of raping a former student under the age of 16 appeared before a judge on Monday.
According to WKYT, a Lexington district judge entered a plea of not-guilty on behalf of Lindsey Banta Jarvis.
Jarvis appeared in court, accompanied by an adult male. That male was not identified. The arrest report indicates that Jarvis is married.

Jarvis, a Fayette County school employee, is charged with two counts of third-degree rape in Fayette County. A Woodford County grand jury also handed down indictments against Jarvis. In Woodford County, Jarvis is charged with one count of third degree rape, one county of third degree sodomy and one count of engaging in an unlawful transaction with a minor.
Authorities say all the charges concern the same victim, who is under 16. The Woodford County indictment indicates that Jarvis sodomized the victim in May 2016 and had sexual intercourse with the victim in June 2016.
The arrest report alleges that the victim told police he had sexual intercourse with Jarvis and it goes on to allege that his cell phone contained information indicating that he and Jarvis were in a romantic relationship.
According to WKYT, a Fayette County Schools spokesperson confirmed that Jarvis was a para-educator at Veterans Park Elementary. She was hired in Aug. 2016 as a teacher's aide, and resigned last Friday.
"While we cannot comment on individual personnel issues, we can assure families and community members that we are aware of the matter," said school spokesperson Lisa Deffendall. "Our personnel protocols in a case like this would call for placing an employee on administrative leave pending resolution."

my PE teacher was a 300 pound lesbian with a buzz cut
Defining rape down
there’s pretty much zero chance this wasn’t 100% voluntary all around
it’s probably time we stopped pretending this country’s 14- and 15-year olds aren’t having sex all the time
she’d bring a lawn chair out onto the grass field and we’d walk around and talk and such. Sometimes she would yell things. I never broke a sweat
pedophiles are preying on 14-15 year olds!
I had this other PE teacher, an old guy, and every day you couldn’t leave without taking a shower- but here’s the thing, so in order to get a towel, you had to go up to him nude and wet, to prove you had taken a shower, and then he’d hand you a towel. I thought it was weird back then, but now that I think about it, that was pretty effing creepy.
His point is that kids that age (and younger) are bonking each other.
I know by Freeper Bylaws she is not guilty
That being said, there is a serious problem with teachers having sexual relations (in this case rape by definition of the law) with students. It is moral depravity that can not be tolerated in a civil society. If this was a male teacher committing these crimes on a female, we would want him hung and rightly so.
Technically those would be hebephiles, not pedophiles. Pedos go after physically immature targets, and 14 is usually way too old for them.
No way in hell she is guilty!
I was 15 the 1st time....
And the 2nd time....
And the 3rd time....
The guilty/ Not Guilty thing is about consequences.
What are the physical consequences for a female to have sex?
What are the emotional consequences for a female/teen girl to have sex?
The risk for a man is minimal.
That is why women play the “Almighty God and My Body” card. To gain some control over a situation they will live with for 9 months to 18 years, while a man can just walk away...
He sure looks light in the loafers
I just noticed she has a mole on her neck.
Burn the witch! /S
Lindsey Jarvis had no INTENT to do anything wrong... so therefore she is NOT GUILTY!
I’m going to sue the school.
After I found out she was teaching, I tried to enroll but, they said I was too old.
WTF? I’m 50 something and they let her loose with a 15 year old?
