Students took the stand Wednesday during the second day of the trial for a former Miamisburg teacher accused of having a sexual relationship on school property with a 14-year-old student.
Langford faces three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unwanted sexual conduct with a minor.
Two students testified Wednesday, both of whom were students of Langford. One of them talked about what he saw after he walked into Langford’s classroom for first period the day of the alleged incident in question.
“Once you put your backpack on the ledge, what did you do?” an attorney from the prosecution asked.
“I turned around and saw [student’s name] under the desk,” he said.
The teen said he didn’t see the student at the center of this case when he first walked into the classroom. Because of his age, we’re withholding his name to protect his identity.
He testified that the student under the desk left the room moments later.
“After a few minutes, he left,” he said.
The student then testified during cross-examination that chairs were arranged differently that day in the classroom, and desks were stacked in the back.
Assistant superintendent Steve Homan, who also took the stand, said he conducted an investigation, and after believing the alleged incident to be suspicious, he had administrators call children’s services. He said Langford told him the student was helping her carry donuts to her classroom and stacking or unstacking the seating in the room.
“I found it suspicious that the classroom door was locked,” Homan said. “It would have to be intentionally locked from the inside and the blinds shut with a student.”
The trial continues at the Montgomery County courthouse Thursday.
