Lexington Science Teacher Charged With Molesting Students Released On Bond

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A high school science teacher accused of molesting two students in the 1970s has been released from jail after posting a deposit on his bond.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that a judge agreed to release 60-year-old Jack Hubbard from Fayette County Detention Center after he surrendered his passport and paid ten percent of the bond.

Hubbard is charged with four counts of first-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree rape in connection with alleged sexual assaults. He and another former teacher, Roberta Walter, were arrested last month.

One of the students, Carol Lynne Maner, recently won nearly four million dollars in a civil trial against Fayette County's Board of Education after a jury found district officials ignored incidents of sexual abuse.
