AG Daniel Cameron announces indictment of Floyd County school administrator

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT) – Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that a Floyd County school administrator was charged Thursday with sexual assault. The indictment comes after action by the Special Prosecution Unit.

The indictment, which was released on Wednesday, alleges April Bradford, 50, participated in the sexual assault of minors. The charges relate to the testimony of two victims who were minors between 1997 and 2007, when the alleged assaults took place.

Bradford is an assistant manager, coach and former teacher.

She faces eleven counts of unlawful transaction with a minor first degree (felony Class B); one count of sodomy in the second degree (class C felony); and seven counts of sodomy in the third degree (felony Class D).

According to an article published by the Lexington Herald-Leader, Floyd County Superintendent Anna Shepherd said district officials became aware of the state police investigation into inappropriate and potentially criminal conduct there. more than ten years ago by the administrator.

The article indicates that the deputy director was suspended at that time pending the outcome of the investigation.

Bradford has not been allowed onto district property since then, and the matter was reported to the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board.

Shepherd told the Herald-Leader that he was prohibited from commenting on personnel matters.

Kentucky State Police began investigating the case when they learned of the allegations in January.

Bradford was taken to the Floyd County Detention Center, but we’re told she’s on bail.
