Teacher Charged With Sexually Abusing Middle School Student

A 32-year-old teacher faces multiple sexual abuse charges.

Miamisburg, OH – A former middle school teacher has been charged for engaging in sex acts with a 14-year-old male student while inside the school building, court records revealed on Wednesday.

Jessica Langford, 32, a married mother of one, was a math teacher at Miamisburg Middle School for nine years before she resigned her position in May amid allegations of her sexual relationship with an eighth-grade student, the Daily Mail reported.

Additional details of the charges against Langford emerged on Wednesday, after Langford requested that prosecutors specify the allegations against her, as well as the name of her accuser.

According to the Dayton Daily News, Langford assaulted the 14-year-old student “on or about May 23.”

Court documents indicate that Langford performed oral sex acts on the student on two occasions, and that the student performed sex acts on Langford on two occasions.

Langford also had sexual intercourse with the victim, police said.

The boy told another teacher about the incidents, and the teacher then reported the alleged assaults to school administrators.

School district officials confronted Langford on May 24 – just one day after the alleged offenses took place –and told her that she was being placed on administrative leave.

“We did our own little, quick investigation at that point,” Miamisburg Superintendent Dr. David Vail told FOX News.

Langford resigned her teaching position on the same day.

“Because of that fact we were mandated to report it to the Ohio Department of Education,” Dr. Vial said.

“Far too often we are hearing of people in trusting positions abusing their power,” Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. told WRGT. “This teacher violated her position of trust and authority by engaging in a relationship and abusing a minor student.”

According to the Daily Mail, Langford has been married for seven years and has a 4-year-old daughter.

Langford was charged on Nov. 14 with three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, and was released on her
own recognizance.

She pleaded not guilty on Nov. 21.
