WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – A former Franklin High School teacher will spend four years in prison for having sex with a student last year.
26-year-old Madalynn Arnett, of Dayton, pleaded guilty to sexual battery, a third-degree felony. She will also be registered as a Tier III sex offender.
On March 23, 2018, a male student asked Arnett at school what he could do to improve his grades, and initially she declined to help him. She contacted him later on social media and began having conversations that were sexual in nature, and sent the student nude pictures and videos of herself.
Later that evening, Arnett picked the student up from his home and drove to a nearby parking lot where she engaged in sexual intercourse with the student in her vehicle.
The incident was reported to school officials, who contacted police.
“I continue to be amazed that teachers who engage in sexual activity with students believe that these teenagers will keep it a secret. Eventually, it gets out, and when it does, the price is usually a prison sentence,” says Warren County Prosecutor David P. Fornshell.
