KSP Logo

The Kentucky State Police have arrested a former Carlisle County Middle and High School teacher for having a relationship with a 17-year-old student. 

KSP arrested 29-year-old Zachary Sims of Hickory on Tuesday. An investigation last month found evidence showing sexually explicit conversations between Sims and the juvenile over several months. Sims resigned from his teaching position after the investigation began.

He is charged with two felonies involving unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual activity and tampering with physical evidence and a misdemeanor involving official misconduct. He is lodged in the Ballard County Jail.
