LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - A health and gym teacher accused of sexual misconduct with several students at a southwest Ohio high school has resigned after being released from jail.
Warren County Assistant Prosecutor Gary Loxley says a judge released 32-year-old Stacy Schuler of Springboro on Tuesday with the condition that she wear an electronic monitoring device and have no contact with unrelated minors or high school students. She had been in jail since Friday.
Schuler faces 16 counts of sexual battery involving a student and three counts of providing alcohol to a minor. The Middletown Journal reports that she resigned Tuesday from Mason High School, where she had worked since 2000.
Defense attorney Charles Rittgers said his office was just starting to investigate the allegations on Tuesday.
