A Henry Clay High School teacher induced a 9-year-old boy to send photos
of his genitals in a text and also sent the boy adult pornography, a
police citation alleges.
Kevin Lentz, 49, asked the boy to delete the conversations so his parents
wouldnt know, according to the Lexington Police Department citation.
Lentz reportedly sent the child more than 10 images of pornography.
The incident occurred in July, the citation said.
Lentz made his first Fayette District Court appearance virtually Wednesday
afternoon. Judge Melissa Murphy entered a guilty plea on his behalf. Lentz
didnt have an attorney but said he would hire one.
His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 18.
Lentz was arrested and charged Tuesday with 10 counts of distribution of
obscene matter to a minor, seven counts of use of a minor in a sexual
performance (under 16) and six counts of tampering with physical evidence.
Fayette District Judge Lindsay Thurston set a $50,000 bond and ordered
Lentz to not have contact with minor children as a condition of his
release, according to court documents. He remained in the Fayette
Detention Center Wednesday morning.
Lentz was an English teacher at Henry Clay High School and had worked for
the district since 2005, Fayette County Public Schools spokesperson Dia
Davidson Smith told the Herald-Leader. He was placed on leave Tuesday
following news of his arrest.
In addition to being a teacher, Lentz was also recently a youth volunteer
at Lexingtons Faith Lutheran Church, Pastor Dana Lockhart said. He was
not currently on staff, but had worked as an interim youth leader in 2013
and 2014, said Lockhart.
Lentz will be removed from his volunteer role under church policies
pertaining to child protection, Lockhart said.
We are not aware of any wrongdoing through his work at the church,
