GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - A central Kentucky high school teacher is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old student.

Police told media that 26-year-old Elizabeth Alexander was arrested Tuesday and charged with sex abuse and use of a minor in a sexual performance.

The Scott County school district’s website has Alexander listed as a social studies teacher at Scott County High School.

Police and Scott County Schools released a joint statement saying the allegations are still being investigated. They declined further comment.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Alexander has an attorney.
