Former Seymour Middle School teacher sentenced

A former Seymour Middle School teacher who pleaded guilty to molesting a child younger than 14 was sentenced to 27-years in prison on Tuesday.

Television station WLKY says that Aaron Murray pleaded guilty to three counts of child molesting last month. He was the then-12-year-old’s math teacher, but also tutored her and spent time with her outside of school, according to the report.

The investigation into Murray began last July, when a parent reported the alleged molestation to the Seymour Police Department. The station cited court documents, in which Murray admitted to police that he kissed and fondled the girl.

The judge suspended six-years of Murray’s sentence.
