Sex with student sends Cheryl Clark to jail

Cheryl Clark, 44-year-old teacher from of Huntsville, Ohio, has been sentenced to 60 days in the Logan County Jail for sexual battery of an 18-year-old student.

Last month Clark pleaded no contest before Logan County Common Pleas Court Judge Mark S. O’Connor to one count of felony sexual battery. She also admitted to pursuing a relationship with the boy.

Clark was teacher at Indian Lake High School for 15 years when she met the male student she started to pursue. The two regularly exchanged sexually explicit text messages, and had sex in her home at least twice, the first time on Feb. 10, which was 16 days after the student turned 18. Uunder Ohio law, it is a felony because Clark held a position of trust.

Clark told probation officers that she thought the relationship was permissible because the boy had turned 18.

The judge also ordered Clark to undergo counseling and not to have any contact with the victim.

In addition to five years of court supervision, as a sex offender she will have lifetime registration requirements with the county sheriff.
