Kentucky teacher charged after alleged sexual contact with a student

MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) - A teacher in western Kentucky has been
charged with first-degree sexual abuse after police say she had
sexual contact with a student.
Kentucky State Police spokesman Dean Patterson says 38-year-old
Amy Noles, a Spanish teacher at Graves County High School in
Mayfield, had illegal sexual contact with a student at least once.
School Superintendent Peter Galloway told The Paducah Sun that
the school system suspended Noles after her arrest Thursday
(http://bit.ly/ta9u4w ).
Patterson says Noles is charged under a state law passed in 2008
that makes sexual contact between minors and people in positions of
special authority or trust illegal, even if the young person is
over 16. Otherwise, 16 is the age of legal sexual consent in
Kentucky.
Noles was being held in Graves County jail.
