Former Teacher In Court For Relationship With Student

Akron, OH -  Sentencing was delayed for a former Special Education Teacher today for having a two year relationship with a now 17-year-old boy.

The judge wants more time to do a background check on the teacher for more more information before the ruling is handed down.

The new sentencing date is August 29th, 2007.

In July 37-year-old Renee Smith pleaded guilty to sex and alcohol charges.

The student attended Springfield High School where Smith taught.

Police say she also gave alcohol to several underage kids.

Smith has already given up her teaching license and will be classified as a sexually oriented offender.
