A Kentucky high school teacher, who authorities state has actually confessed to repeatedly having sex with a trainee, claims the minor granted their relationship.
Haley Reed, 37, has argued as a defense that the 17-year-old youth she presumably had intercourse with eight times on school home prior to she was arrested in June 2018, was old sufficient to lawfully grant have sex with her, reports WLKY.
Reed was charged with multiple counts of rape and sodomy along with unlawful transaction with a minor. She is supposedly wed and has children, according to the Oldham Age.
In a court filing, the defense claims the student was old enough to consent to a sexual relationship under state law, which suggests Reed’s rights under Kentucky’s constitution were violated when she was arrested.
