On Wednesday, March 13, 2024 Kentucky State Police lodged a Whitley County gym teacher, 39 year old Lioney Henriquez of Corbin, in the Whitley County Detention Center.

Henriquez was interviewed as the result of an Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigation. The KSP Electronic Crime Branch began the investigation after receiving a complaint that the suspect was having an inappropriate relationship with two minors.

The investigation resulted in seizing numerous electronic devices belonging to Henriquez. These devices were taken to KSP’s forensic laboratory for examination.

Henriquez is currently charged with nine counts of promoting a sexual performance by a minor under the age of 18. This charge is a Class-C felony punishable by five to ten years in prison. Henriquez was also charged with two counts of sexual abuse, first degree, and procuring or promoting the use of a minor by an electronic means. These charges are Class-D felonies punishable by one to five years in prison.

Henriquez is no longer employed by the Whitley County School System as of March 11.
