A former Miamisburg teacher convicted of having sex in her classroom with a 14-year-old is asking to be given a minimum sentence.
A 104-page document filed for Jessica Langford urges Judge Timothy O’Connell to consider the 32-year-old Centerville woman’s “blemish-free record” as it seeks “community control sanctions with electronic monitoring.”

The document includes about 40 letters in support of Langford, who is set to be sentenced on Tuesday.
Last month she was found guilty of three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
A jury of eight men and four women convicted her of having sex with teen after the student testified in detail about the events he said occurred May 23, 2017, before the start of the last day of school.

Langford is eligible for probation and the crimes for which she was convicted do not carrying with them mandatory prison sentences, Montgomery County assistant prosecutor Michele Henne has said.
Henne has said she will push for “maximum prison time.” Each of the six counts carries with it up to five years in prison, and Henne has said she expects the court to merge the counts, likely making the maximum sentence 15 years.
