MURRAY, Ky. (AP) - A student teacher in western Kentucky has pleaded not guilty to a sex abuse charge involving a Calloway County High School student.
The Murray Ledger & Times reports that 24-year-old John "Drew" Millwood entered the plea Monday in Circuit Court.
The Calloway County Sheriff's Department says Millwood attends Murray State University and was working as a student teacher. The Sheriff's Department says Millwood met a female student under the age of 18 after school and drove her to a location in the county where they had sexual intercourse.
The age of consent in Kentucky is 16, but it is illegal for a person in a position of authority to have sexual contact with a minor.
