A 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.
The jury’s verdict came after a former Miamisburg Middle School student testified he was 14 years old when he had sex with Langford in her classroom on May 23, 2017.
Langford, who had worked for the district for nearly nine years, was placed on paid administrative leave that day and later resigned in a letter dated that same day, records show.
