LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - A Kentucky school teacher is answering to charges after police say she was in a home where minors were consuming alcohol and marijuana.

WKYT sister station WAVE reports Lindsey Lewis, 36, appeared in a Bullitt County courtroom where her attorney entered a not guilty plea was entered on 14 counts of unlawful transaction with a minor.

Lewis is accused of hosting a New Year's party. She was taken into custody early Jan. 1. The arrest report says officers were sent to the home after neighbors called complaining about "teenagers at a party next door" who "tore up" their property pulling in and out of the driveway. Police say Lewis told officers she was the adult presiding. At least 40 people were inside.

Jefferson County Public Schools spokeswoman Renee Murphy says Lewis is a special education teacher at Phoenix School of Discovery in Lyndon, and the district is examining the situation.

Lewis' next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 26.
