Neelley Fired

Western Kentucky – Jason Neelley, the Lone Oak High School teacher charged Monday with sexual abuse of a 17-year-old female student, has been fired on grounds of insubordination and conduct unbecoming of a teacher. The Paducah Sun reports, McCracken County Sheriff John Hayden seized documents Tuesday that include sign-out sheets showing both Neelley and the student absent from the school during the same hours. According to the charges, Neelley had inappropriate contact with the student during school hours but off school property. School board attorney Gorman Bradley says Neelley has 10 days to challenge the termination. (Paducah Sun)
