A special education teacher in Ohio allegedly had sex with a 17-year-old female student, authorities said.
Jennifer Walsh, a 26-year-old teacher at Sycamore High School in Cincinnati, was indicted by a grand jury Monday on two counts of sexual battery in connection with the alleged relationship with the teen from May through August, WXIX reports.
Police in Montgomery launched an investigation into a sexual battery complaint on Oct. 18 after an investigator from Hamilton County’s Job and Family Services agency reported an incident involving Walsh and the teenage girl.
Walsh, whose computer, cellphone and personal documents were seized by police, resigned from her position as an intervention specialist at the school a day later, according to the station.
“Thank you for the opportunity to work for such a great education institution,” Walsh wrote in her resignation letter.
A total of five witnesses spoke with investigators regarding the allegations, including a teenager, WXIX reports.
