Students interviewed about a former Miamisburg teacher convicted last month of sex crimes with a minor said they felt uncomfortable with her providing them gifts and showing them an erotic photo, Miami Twp. police records show.
Students told police last year that Jessica Langford gave them a gift card, shoes and an iPhone while providing “a more casual atmosphere” in her middle school classroom that included showing students a photo of she and her husband having oral sex, according to police records.

One 14-year-old said he felt weird after he said Langford gave him an iPhone, which he later returned, according to the police report. Another 14-year-old said seeing the photo of the teacher and her husband was awkward, the report indicates.
This news organization obtained the Miami Twp. police records using Ohio’s public records laws. The police report does not specifically quote students, but paraphrases their comments.
The report was not introduced as evidence at Langford’s trial last month, though some information included in it is consistent with testimony given by Langford’s teen accuser and the student’s father.

A Montgomery County jury convicted Langford, 32, of Centerville, on April 13 of three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. She is scheduled to be sentenced May 14.
Those charges were not connected with the photo two 14-year-old students described in the Miami Twp. police report.
Langford’s defense attorney, Lawrence Greger, declined to comment on the police report.
