A former teacher from Madison Southern High School in Berea was arrested Wednesday on charges of distribution of obscene matter to a minor following an investigation by Kentucky State Police.
According to the warrant and citation, 26-year-old Jordan Chapman was no longer working in Madison County Schools, and had since moved away. However, it was then that he allegedly sent pictures and a video of his genitals to a former 17-year-old student.
The investigation into this activity began when multiple students were allegedly contacted by Chapman, their former teacher.
Police report that the instances occurred late last year after he had left Madison County Schools to work in Grayson County. Chapman was non-renewed from his position at MSHS, where he had worked from 2015 to 2018.
Reports state that Chapman had resigned from his position at Grayson schools in February of this year.
He was arrested and then released from the Madison County Detention center on a conditional bond of $1,000 that he not contact the teen.
