BENTON, Ky. (AP) - A former middle school teacher in Kentucky has been sentenced to five years behind bars after pleading guilty to having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 14-year-old female student.

The Paducah Sun (http://bit.ly/1KXmghE ) reports that a Marshall County judge accepted a plea agreement Monday in the case against 24-year-old former teacher Chelsea Rose. Rose taught at Reidland Middle School in Paducah.

Denying Rose’s request for probation or any lesser alternative, Circuit Judge Dennis Foust said Rose’s sentence is to run concurrently with any jail time handed down in a related McCracken County case.

The judge also said Rose will be required to register as a sex offender.

Rose pleaded guilty Sept. 21 to charges of first-degree attempted unlawful transaction with a minor and third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.
