A FORMER teacher has been charged with raping a 17-year-old student.
Mollie Verkamp, 27, from Florence, Kentucky, was arrested on July 9 after a year-long investigation, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office said.
Verkamp was reported to detectives in 2019 by the school district after it was alleged she had sent sexually explicit videos and text messages to an 18-year-old student at Walton Verona High School, where she was employed as a teacher.
Detectives claim that during the course of investigating that incident, Verkamp told them she had sent sexually explicit messages to another student, 17, at Grant County High School.
She allegedly also admitted to having sex with that student at her home.
At the time of her arrest and during the 2019 – 2020 school year, Verkamp was not employed with any school district, police said.
According to a report by the Cincinnati Enquirer, during that time Verkamp worked as a yoga instructor.
