LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former police officer has been sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to violating sex abuse laws with students at a residential, educational program run by the Kentucky National Guard.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Louisville said in a statement that 45-year-old Stephen E. Miller of Grayson County received the sentence on Monday after pleading guilty in July to abusive sexual contact with three female students and third-degree sodomy with a fourth at Bluegrass Challenge Academy in 2013. Miller is a former Leitchfield police officer.

Prosecutors say he later worked at Bluegrass Challenge Academy, located at Fort Knox, and had supervisory authority over the students.

The statement said Miller’s sentence will be followed by 10 years of supervised release.
