The request by a former Miamisburg teacher indicted on charges of sexual battery and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor student to have all grand jury testimony prepared for trial has been rejected.
But the judge’s ruling in the case against Jessica Langford, 32, of Centerville, left open the possibility that grand jury testimony of certain witnesses may be available for trial, which is set for April.
The attorney for Langford requested the secret proceedings be available for trial because their absence may “deprive the defendant of a fair adjudication of the allegations,” Montgomery County Common Pleas Court records state.
Attorney Lawrence Greger said there may be a “particularized need” in the case that would allow Judge Timothy O’Connell’s to permit the request, court records show.
O’Connell’s ruling states “the parties conclude that the existence of a particularized need is not evident at this time.”
“The evidence, at this point, seems to indicate that a particularized need may develop at trial, as this matter seems to turn on the existence of possible inconsistent statements by two witnesses,” McConnell’s ruling filed Jan. 11 states.
Langford was indicted Nov. 14 on three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. On Nov. 21, Langford pleaded not guilty to all counts and has remained free on conditional recognizance, court records show.
