Nobody likes fake news! But nobody also likes someone who gets caught with a 14-year-old and 16-year-old student… Another day and yet another story where I am letting off the post with this sentence: Another teacher has been caught, arrested, and faces punishment for, you guessed it! Sleeping with a student.
This time it was two separate ones for a long period of time!
Female teacher at Maysville Local Schools in Zanesville, Ohio has pleaded not guilty to nine counts of sexual battery against two male students.
Darci L. Lake, 23, appeared in court Wednesday in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court for arraignment.
The former full-time substitute teacher, who was 22-years-old when the offenses began, faces a maximum potential of five years in prison for each of the nine counts, reported the Times Recorder.
Both victims were students – one was 16-years-old and turned 17, and the other was 14-years-old and turned 15.
Lake, who is a 2012 graduate of Maysville High School, was arrested on December 21 on allegations of having a sexual relationship with two underage male students.
Seven of the nine counts listed in her indictment occurred between February 1, 2017 and November 1, 2017.
The other two counts occurred between March 1, 2017, and August 31, 2017.
Common Pleas Judge Mark Fleegle continued her bond at $200,000.
Lake is no longer contracted with Maysville after Barrie Howell, president of Renhill Group, wrote in an email that she had been dismissed from the company.
