A former substitute teacher in Ohio was sentenced to prison on Monday after admitting to a having sex with a student who her husband plied with alcohol.
Jessica Storer, 29, had sex with an 18-year-old student inside of the Pandora home she shared with her husband, Derrick, 33, after they invited a group of students to come over last year.
Judge Randall Basinger sentenced her to prison for two years on Monday after the mother-of-two pleaded guilty at a previous hearing to sexual battery.
A letter read in court written by the victim revealed that since the incident, he had attempted suicide and that he’s been harassed at Pandora Gilboa High School, bullied online, and is the subject of gossip by adults, LimaOnline.com reported.
‘I should have been able to trust her,’ he added. ‘I’m trying to get my life together.
‘Jessica Storer has really made the last six months a living hell for me. I hated it and I hated myself for doing it.’
The victim’s father also spoke out in court about his son’s suicide attempts and said: ‘He is trying to make his way out of this. Our son is going to have to live with this for the rest of his life.’
The victim’s statement said Storer manipulated him when he spoke to her about a bad breakup he was going through.
Storer, who was a substitute teacher through the Putnam County Educational Service Center, was interviewed by police on December 13 after officers received a tip the day before.
Investigators contacted the 18-year-old teen who said he was given alcohol before having sex with Storer and sleeping over.
When Storer was questioned, she admitted to having sex with the teen and was arrested on December 21 following an investigation by the Pandora Police Department.
Storer claimed to Judge Randall Basinger during her sentencing on Monday that the teen helped himself to the alcohol inside her home.
‘The sexual relationship between the 18-year-old and I was a one-time thing,’ she told the judge.
‘I accept full responsibility for him drinking and for not saying no.
‘I do feel it was consensual. It was not forced. That’s where I came in saying this should be between my husband and I, my priest and God.’
Before she was sentenced, she asking Basinger to consider her mental health claiming that she was taking medication for bipolar disorder and depression.
In addition to the two year prison sentence, Storer has to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
Her husband pleaded guilty to multiple counts of first-degree misdemeanor furnishing alcohol to a minor in April.
The 33-year-old father-of-two faces up to 18 months in jail.
