EVANSVILLE, Ind — (WHAS11)-A western Kentucky teacher has been charged with sodomy, accused of repeatedly having consensual sexual relations with an underage girl in a public-school classroom.

The accusations against 27-year-old Evan Harvey relate to his time in the Henderson County School district which is across the Ohio River from Evansville Indiana.

He had already gotten a job as a teacher and football coach in the Daviess County school district in Owensboro by the time the claims surfaced.

He has since been suspended from that district.
