FRANKLIN, Ohio -- Madalyn Arnett, a Franklin High School teacher who had been accused of having sex with a 16-year-old student, tendered her resignation to the Franklin Board of Education Monday night. The board unanimously accepted, according to the Journal-News.

Arnett, who had worked for the district for less than a year, was placed on paid administrative leave March 27 after district officials heard rumors she had been inappropriately texting a student. 

She later admitted to “sexting” and, after further investigation that county prosecutor David Fornshell said led to more serious discoveries, was arrested on felony charges of sexual battery.

Her resignation will take effect April 20, the Journal-News reported.
