DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The former Miamisburg teacher convicted for having sex with one of her students is dropping her appeal.

A jury in April found Jessica Langford guilty of three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. Prosecutors said Langford had sex with a student in her classroom in May.

She was sentenced to one year in prison and five years probation. Langford is also considered a Tiier III sex offender.

Langford filed an appeal in late June, claiming she had ineffective counsel.

Court documents show Langford dropped that appeal August 9th.
