— A former Miamisburg teacher charged with multiple counts of sexual battery and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor is set to go to trial next month.
Jessica Langford, 32, of Centerville, was indicted in November on three counts of each charge and pleaded not guilty to all counts. She remains free on conditional recognizance awaiting trial the week of April 9, court records show.
Langford is accused of having oral sex and intercourse with a teen student “on or about May 23,” according to court documents. Miamisburg City School District documents state she resigned the next day.
Here are four issues, according to recent court filings, Langford is seeking in the case:
•A motion filed Monday seeks “full discovery” of evidence the state possesses. As of Monday, court documents indicate the defense has received only a thumb drive containing phone downloads.
•Langford is seeking to read transcribed forensic interviews with the alleged victim. Judge Timothy O’Connell earlier ruled against her request to have all grand jury testimony prepared for trial. But the ruling left open the possibility that grand jury testimony of certain witnesses may be available for trial.
•Langford’s attorney has subpoenaed Miamisburg City Schools Assistant Superintendent/Director of Human Resources Steve Homan. The state has subpoenaed nearly 20 witnesses, including Homan.
•The defense also seeks video surveillance of Miamisburg Middle School on May 22, 2017. That was the first day of the last week of school and two days before district records show Langford resigned after being confronted with the allegations.
Specifically, the subpoena mentions video surveillance between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. of the main corridor and main office areas.
