“I just want to say I am sorry,” Weaver said. “I’ve spent every waking moment the last four months reflecting on this. I have no rationalization or justification. I’m responsible and my behavior was wrong.
Huffman said the letters from his wife, Kristi — a senior director at LexisNexis — other family and friends “spoke volumes” and that neither Weaver nor his supporters made any excuses for him. Huffman also said sending him to prison would be “the easy thing to do” and that a sentence of probation is “much more difficult.”
Weaver is married with two children and was so during the criminal acts. Centerville Police Department public information officer John Davis said none of the alleged acts happened on school grounds. Davis said he doesn’t remember a similar case involving a Centerville teacher in his 21 years.
Neither Weaver’s attorneys nor the prosecutors on the case commented about the sentence.
A press release from the office of Montgomery County Prosector Mat Heck Jr. said: “The defendant abused his position of trust as a high school teacher and took advantage of that trust by having a sexual relationship with one of his students. As a community, we expect and deserve better from those entrusted with educating our youth.
