Lynda Chase sentencing continued

Register staff report

RICHMOND — The sentencing for Lynda Chase, a former secretary at Madison Central High School, was continued today in Madison Circuit Court.

The reasoning for the continuation is because Chase’s sex offender evaluation is not complete.

Chase pleaded guilty in May to rape and sodomy charges. She admitted to sexual encounters with a 15-year-old male student while working as secretary and statistician for the boys basketball team.

In a plea deal, the commonwealth's attorney is recommending a 3-year sentence that would also require Chase to register as a sex offender and undergo counseling.
