At a court appearance on Tuesday, it was determined that former Grayson County High School teacher and baseball coach Gavin Logsdon will be tried for third-degree rape in Meade County.

Following an unsuccessful attempt in April to garner a 12-person impartial jury for Logsdon's trial in Grayson County Circuit Court, a mistrial was ruled, and a deadline was set to either change the venue of the trial or set a new trial date.

On Tuesday of this week, a motion was made and an order signed to change the venue of the trial to Meade County; however, a trial date has not yet been set, according to Grayson County Circuit Court Clerk Stacie Blain.

Logsdon's third-degree rape charge stems from an alleged sexual relationship in 2016 with a then-under age 18 student, with whom he came into contact as a result of his occupation at Grayson County High School.

Logsdon was arrested for this charge by the Kentucky State Police, to whom he reportedly confessed to the allegations, in November of 2016. He has remained free on bond since that time.

Logsdon is being represented by Louisville defense attorney Steve Romines.

The case is being prosecuted by Hardin County Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Teresa Logsdon (no relation to Gavin Logsdon), who was appointed special prosecutor for the case.
