A married high school teacher has been jailed after seducing one of her students and meeting up for sex with them during the summer break.
Brandi Lynn Vaughn, 25, formerly known as Brandi Whittaker, of Richmond, Kentucky was accused of rape, sexual abuse and sodomy. She was arraigned after she met the 16-year-old boy, first in Fort Boonesborough State Park in June and later at her home in July of 2015 for sex.
Vaughn, who admitted the relationship with the student has been jailed for a year
However, her lawyer was able to negotiate a plea bargain, and she admitted one count of using an electronic device to induce a minor to engage in sexual activities and sentenced to one year in jail.
The six other Class D felony charges against Vaughn were then dismissed by the judge.
Among them were two counts of first-degree sexual abuse; two counts of third-degree sodomy; one count of third-degree rape and one count of evidence tampering.

and social media posts show the church hosted a wedding shower for her in March 2013.
According to the Richmond Register, police said she was quite open about the relationship and confessed to investigators to having sex with the then-16-year-old male student twice.
The age of consent in Kentucky is 16, though rape, sexual abuse and sodomy laws still apply if the alleged victim is under 18 and the person was in a position of authority.
