Today, Warren County Court of Common Pleas Judge Robert Peeler set a new trial date for former Mason High School teacher Stacy Schuler who was accused of having sex with several male students in February of 2011.
Schuler, 33, faces 16 counts of sexual battery and 3 counts of providing alcohol to minors. The trial, initially set for August 8, 2011, has been rescheduled to begin October 24, 2011, to allow time for a mental evaluation after Schuler's attorneys filed a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.
If convicted, Schuler could receive a maximum penalty of five years in
prison for each count of sexual battery and a fine of $500 to $1,000 and
six months in prison for each count of providing alcohol to minors.
Criminal charges such as those Schuler faces carry severe penalties and should be handled by an experienced criminal defense attorney.
