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.

Prosecutors with the commonwealth offered Sims a diversion agreement. If that agreement is approved by a judge, Sims would be on probation for five years. He would be able to avoid prison as long as he stays out of trouble during that time.

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