A Ohio teacher has been sentenced to two years in prison for having sex with her 17-year-old student in 2017.
Laura Bucy was arrested in 2018 and confessed to police that she’d had sex with a male student once in the fall of 2017, soon after starting her job in Twinsburg. She also sent inappropriate text messages to the teen, and bought vaping products and marijuana for him.
Fox Cleveland reports that police are accusing Bucy of sexual battery as well as disseminating matter harmful to juveniles. Citing records, the station says that Bucy “did engage sexual conduct with the victim” and that she sent “obscene material to a juvenile, obscene images, over social media.”
According to Bucy’s LinkedIn page, she has worked at Twinsburg High School as a family and consumer sciences teacher since August 2017. Previously, Bucy worked in Akron, Ravenna and Strongsville. Online records show that Bucy was paid $26 per hour. Bucy’s LinkedIn page says that she also previously worked as a claims adjustor for an insurance company in 2016.
