Ex-Ohio teacher gets 4 years in student sex caseFormer Ohio teacher gets 4 years in sex case; lawyers argued students took advantage of her
LEBANON, Ohio (AP) ' A former Ohio high school teacher has been sentenced to four years in prison for having sex with teenage boys at her home.
Thirty-three-year-old Stacy Schuler was convicted Thursday of sexual battery.
She was accused of having sex in 2010 with five Mason High School students, some football players. She had been a teacher and athletic trainer at the school north of Cincinnati since 2000 and resigned in February after being charged.
Earlier this week, five former students testified they had sexual encounters with Schuler at her home in Springboro.
She had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Her lawyers argued she had medical and psychological issues and didn't remember the alleged incidents. They also said the students took advantage of her.
