A former LaRue County High School teacher pleaded guilty Wednesday to third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.

Jeremy Todd Blair, 33, formerly of Hodgenville and now living in Leitchfield, was sentenced to 15 days in jail and is not allowed to teach for five years. He was charged with assisting or causing a minor age 16 or younger to disobey parents.

According to a criminal complaint served by Deputy Eric Williamson, Blair had been “told to stay away” from the girl by her parents earlier this year.

Williamson said he made a routine check at the LaRue County Saddle Club about 10 p.m. June 3. He witnessed a female high school student sitting in the front seat of Blair’s vehicle. Blair was “told to go home,” Williamson said. The criminal summons to court was served on Blair last week.

Blair was a high school track coach and middle school football coach before his resignation at the end of the school year. He worked as a physical education teacher for eight years.
