LOUISVILLE, Kentucky — A Jefferson County jury has recommended a 10-year prison sentence for a former teacher convicted of raping one of his teenage students.

Media reports say the jury on Friday recommended the maximum possible sentence for Casey Kays.

Formal sentencing is scheduled for later this month for the former Academy @ Shawnee teacher.

Kays would be eligible for parole after two years, provided he completes a sex offender treatment program.

The jury found Kays guilty on rape and sodomy charges.

Kays was a teacher and volleyball coach when he was charged with having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.
