NELSON COUNTY, Ky. (WHAS11)—A former Nelson Co. teacher pled guilty on two counts of third-degree rape.
Matthew Bowling entered the plea in exchange for five years of probation. Bowling had been a teacher at Bethlehem High School, when he was accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student.
He was indicted last summer after the girl’s mother found out and went to authorities.
Bowling is also getting therapy as part of his plea deal.
