Teacher Gets Prison for Student Sex

Sonya N. Horn, 32-year-old married former special education teacher at Johnston High School, Newark, Ohio, has been sentenced to four years in prison for sexually assaulting developmentally-disabled student.

Horn was originally charged with eight counts of sexual battery, each a third-degree felony, and tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony. She pleaded guilty to the tampering with evidence charge and entered Alford no contest pleas to four counts of sexual battery. The Alford pleas allow Sonya Horn to maintain her innocence to some of the facts in the case.

Sonya Horn had her teacher’s certificate permanently revoked and will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life. Even though the 18-year-old student was above the age of consent, it is illegal in Ohio for a teacher to have sexual contact with a student.
