    Courier-Journal: Louisville teacher charged with raping student; girl gave conflicting statements (Nov 15 2013)

    A Shawnee High School teacher originally charged with sending explicit text messages to a student is now also accused of raping the teenager and newly released evidence shows the teenager initially denied to investigators that she had a sexual relationship with the teacher. Casey Kays, who taught ninth-grade social studies and coached volleyball, was indicted on charges of third-degree rape, which addresses sex with minors, and third-degree sodomy, according to court records.

    ...

    The girl initially told her mother the relationship was sexual, then recanted to her mother and investigators, before telling prosecutors she and the teacher had a sexual relationship. It began, she told prosecutors, on the last day of school — June 5, 2013 — when she told him “she had feelings for him,” according to a document filed by the Jefferson County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office with the evidence. Kays, her volleyball coach, soon began picking her up in his car one street away from her house, according to prosecutors. The girl’s mother was already concerned about Kays because he drove her to a physical examination for volleyball without her permission, according to evidence ... Prosecutors say Kays and the girl had sexual contact at least twice, including intercourse once, and sent each other nude pictures.

    Fmr. teacher accused of having sexual relationship with student takes stand in trial

    Kays admitted that he and the student shared numerous text messages, emails and other forms of communication during last summer. He also said he did kiss her multiple times and sat with her alone in his car. Barber asked Kays how he could not know that even that type of communication and relationship was inappropriate. "I did think it was inappropriate,” Kays said. “I do know it was inappropriate. I don't know why last summer I felt I wanted to do this that. I felt it was okay to kiss her."


    Kays claimed the alleged victim told him that her mother was pressuring her to say there was a sexual relationship so the family could get money in a civil suit. "I know she said that because she was bribed, manipulated, coerced, threatened to be moved out of her school and bribed with money to lie about it," he said.


    On cross examination the prosecution came at Kays with text messages they claim were sent from him to the alleged victim. In those texts were explicit details that the prosecution claims show a sexual relationship did in fact happen.
