LEBANON, Ohio — A former Franklin High School social studies teacher pleaded guilty Monday to sexual battery involving a 16-year-old student.

Madalyn Arnett, 26, could receive up to five years in prison at her May 3 sentencing.

Under Ohio law, sexual battery most often refers to the crime of having coercive sexual contact with someone over whom them have “supervisory or disciplinary authority,” including a doctor having sex with a patient or a prison guard having sex with an inmate.

Arnett was arrested March 27, 2018. She submitted her resignation days later, the Journal-News reported.

She had worked for the school for under a year at the time of her resignation and arrest.
