LOUISVILLE, KY – A biology teacher in Kentucky has resigned after cops found her giving a student some private lessons in anatomy.

Carrie Shafer, a teacher at DuPont Manual High School in Louisville, was found by police Friday night inside a car and sharing beer with a 17-year-old student.

The 38-year-old and the teen also were partially undressed, police said. Evidence of contraceptive use was visible near the vehicle.

“There were some articles found that appeared to have been from a sexual act — like some condoms and some wet wipes that were on the outside of the vehicle believed to have been thrown from that vehicle,” Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell told WAVE 3 News in Louisville.

Shafer, who taught anatomy and physiology, was cited with a misdemeanor for unlawful transaction with a minor.

Sexual consent in Kentucky is 16, and at the time of the incident police were not aware she was a teacher.

Shafer, who resigned Sunday, could face a felony charge because of her role as an educator.

A new law in Kentucky makes it illegal for a person in “a position of authority or special trust” to engage in sexual activity with someone under 18, Louisville’s Courier-Journal reported.

The teacher was also ticketed for parking in a handicap space.

Shafer’s students were quick to defend the teacher, who had been at Manual High since 2007.

“She’s a good person at heart, and you can really tell that in her classes,” Kyle Peterson told WAVE 3. “And she cares about her students.”

Manual High School issued a statement Tuesday assuring parents the school would find a replacement for Shafer as quickly as possible.

“This is certainly not the kind of publicity Manual wants,” Manual High School principal Larry Wooldridge said.

Shafer was a sponsor of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes group, which consisted of nearly 40 students.

FCA was very saddened to learn of the charges being brought against Carrie Shafer,” the organization said in a statement Tuesday. “We are praying for everyone involved that healing and God’s redemptive power will be demonstrated.”

Shafer will be arraigned March 31, according to the Jefferson Circuit Court clerk’s office.

    I guess this teacher did't pass math class. I guess he got a passing grade after that after school program.

    Same in my Schools UncleDennis. All the female teachers were at least in their 50's and heavy-set. Where were all these so pretty females when we were growing up?
    Yes it is different if it is a male teacher taking advantage of a student. That is just the way it is. I would also be very upset if it was a pre-teen boy being molested by his teacher. For the boys over the age of 13 to 18 it would be a dream come true for a hot teacher to come on to them. That is simply the way it is. Doesn't make it right or legal but don't hand me the garbage that this poor kid is scarred for life stuff either.
    No matter what, she tossed her career away for this dalliance, not to mention that she is a "Mrs." so she is going to have to explain to Hubby some things as well and maybe even her own kids.

    “And she cares about her students.”

    I don't think that kind of caring is what they meant.

    "....I didn't have sexual relations with that 17 year old student...." What a judgement call. The lady with 38 years, one would think that she cultivated some morals over the years but it's good example of what happens when you let what's between your legs rule your life. Looks like love is truly blind.

    Another dumb example of throwing a career away. And now probably face some incarceration.
