Former Teacher Sentenced to Five Years

Paducah, KY – A former Lone Oak High School teacher was sentenced Friday to five years in prison for having sex with a student. 34-year-old Jason Neelley was arrested last December after a 17-year-old girl reported she had a sexual relationship with him. Neelley's charges included first-degree sexual abuse, solicitation, and unlawful use of a minor in a sexual performance. The girl wore a recording device during a meeting with Neelley at the request of local police.
