A new trial date has been set for a Mason High School teacher accused of having sexual contact with five teenage boys and providing some of them with alcohol.
Stacy Schuler, 33, of Springboro, resigned from her position as a physical education, health teacher and athletic trainer with the Warren County school district after she was indicted and turned herself in Feb. 4. She had worked for Mason City Schools for 10 years.
A three-day jury trial is set to begin Aug. 8.
A previous trial was set to begin May 5, but was extended after Schuler’s attorneys asked that the trial be delayed. Judge Robert Peeler granted the defense’s motion, stating that vacating the May 5 trial “was for good cause shown.”
Schuler was indicted on 16 counts of sexual battery and three counts of serving alcohol to an under-aged person in connection with five male students at Mason High School. None of the alleged sexual attacks took place on school grounds.
If found guilty on all counts, Schuler faces 1 to 5 years in prison on each count of sexual battery and six months in jail on each count of serving alcohol to an underage person.
She has been living with her parents in Montgomery County pending her trial and also wears a GPS device and has a curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day, but that permits her to seek employment.
