Female Teacher Charged With Rape, Sodomy Of 15-Year-Old Student

Kendall Burk, 23, was charged with four counts each of rape and sodomy for sexual encounters she had with a student.

Williamstown, KY – A Kentucky high school teacher has been charged with rape and sodomy for multiple sexual encounters she had with a 15-year-old male student over summer break.

Grant County Schools sent out a letter to parents in the district on Aug. 22 that explained that the Grant County High School administration had been tipped off about the illicit affair between the 23-year-old Kendall Burk and a student the day before, WLEX reported.

"The district followed proper protocol for a preliminary investigation and notified the School Resource Officer (SRO); the Grant County Sheriff’s Office subsequently followed with their investigation. The teacher has been removed from duties," the letter from Grant County Schools Superintendent Matthew Morgan said.

Burk was arrested and charged with four counts of third-degree rape and four counts of sodomy, according to WKYT.

The school district relieved Burk of her duties after she was charged.

She was in her second year as a science teacher at Grant County High School, WLEX reported.

The teacher told police she had sex with the student four times during the summer vacation.

Court documents said that Burk told investigators that two of the sexual encounters had happened at her home and two other times she and the 15 year old had sex in her car.

The last time the teacher and the student had sex was on July 3, according to WLEX.

None of the sexual encounters occurred on school property.

"While these events, of course, sadden us, our first priority –and that of the law enforcement with whom we work – is and must always be the protection and safety of our students. We express our appreciation to those who worked with us to this end," the superintendent said in the letter to parents.

Burk was released on house arrest from the Grand County Detention Center on $25,000 bail, WLEX reported.

The former teacher isn’t allowed to have any contact with her victim or any other minors as a condition of her release.

Is it me, or does it seem that more hot female teachers are getting arrested for raping their student boys than their male counterparts for raping their girl students?

Another one. Can these females not find guys their own age to treat them like shit? Because I bet if a nice normal guy was to try and hook up with them, they’d be stuck up bitches.

Personally, I think any adult male or female who has sex with a child is a POS. And if this had been a guy despite his appearance everyone here would be saying the same thing. I think these women just want someone they can manipulate. But fail to think that NO 15yo is going to be having sex with a 23yo and not go out and be telling people about it. And I hope they give her a nice long time in " Grey Bar Detention " to think about what she has done.

I am always sadden when I hear about these stories involving teachers and students. It's my belief that school district across the nation should implement psychological for teachers.

"Burk was released on house arrest from the Grand County Detention Center on $25,000 bail, WLEX reported." When was the last time you saw a male suspect released house arrest?

Another pretty, blond, entitled white girl who thinks the laws don't apply to her. She's a pedophile that should be locked up for a very, very long time. Like a man would be if he did this to a 15 year old girl.
