LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A fired Lexington Bryan Station teacher has pleaded guilty to third-degree sexual abuse. Anthony Graves received 90 days in jail yesterday to be served concurrently with time he's already serving for felony crimes.
Last Friday he was sentenced in Fayette Circuit Court to five years in jail for use of a minor under 18 in sexual performance and three years for possession of matter portraying a minor in sexual performance.
Graves was fired from his Fayette County teaching job in September after allegations of sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl.
A September police report says Graves allowed a 15-year-old girl to touch him in a way that aroused him and that he hugged and kissed the girl at her home.
