Former teacher pleads guilty to wanton endangerment
CARLISLE COUNTY, KY – A former Carlisle County teacher accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a teenage student entered a guilty plea on Thursday.
Zachary Sims pleaded guilty to a count of wanton endangerment and a count of tampering with physical evidence.

The judge will decide whether to accept it on March 1.
