Teacher ordered to stay away from student

Las Vegas Justice of the Peace James Bixler on Thursday ordered a 28-year-old Chaparral High School English teacher not to have any contact with a 17-year-old student with whom he allegedly had sex last month.

Kenneth Bruce Stacy is facing two counts of sexual misconduct for allegedly having sex with the student on July 25 at Stacy's home.

The girl's mother had asked for the protective order. Under the order Stacy is not to have any contact with the alleged victim or her family for the next 30 days. Bixler said after 30 days the order could be extended up to 12 months.

Bixler said the protective order only pertains to Stacy and would not prohibit Draskovich or his investigators from contacting the teen or her family as the case moves forward.

Stacy was scheduled to have his preliminary hearing Thursday, but his attorney, Robert Draskovich, successfully requested that it be postponed. A status check on the case is now set for Sept. 1.

Draskovich would not comment on whether or not Stacy would post bail or if he is currently involved in negotiations with prosecutors. Stacy's bail was initially set at $30,000 after his arrest July 30.

Clark County School District Police arrested Stacy at Chaparral, 3850 Annie Oakley Drive, near Sandhill and Viking roads, where he was teaching summer school.

Stacy worked with the School District for a little more than two years, district officials said.
