— A former Miamisburg teacher indicted on charges of sexual battery and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor is seeking the name of her accuser and specific allegations that led to charges.
Montgomery County court records show Jessica Langford, 32, of Centerville, is asking for the identity of the alleged victim.
The indictment does not specify a specific age or gender of a student, stating it involved one “thirteen years of age or older but less than sixteen.” However, a statement from Prosecutor Mathias Heck Jr. has said he is a 14-year-old student with whom the veteran middle school teacher had “inappropriate sexual conduct.”
Langford is also asking for more details about the acts she is accused of committing, according to a motion filed Nov. 27 by her attorney, Lawrence Greger.
Langford was indicted Nov. 14 on three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. On Nov. 21, she pleaded not guilty to all counts, court records show.
In late May, three counts of the indictment stated, Langford “did engage in sexual conduct with another….and the other person is enrolled in or attends that school…”
Langford, who was hired by Miamisburg schools in August 2008, resigned May 24, shortly after being informed of the allegations, according to Miamisburg school district records.
“The six-count indictment does not contain the name of the alleged victim, nor does it specify the ‘sexual conduct’ that allegedly occurred that comprises a violation of the statutes,” the motion filed by Greger states. “To adequately defend herself, the defendant seeks those two items.”
