AKRON, Ohio (WOIO) - Laura Bucy, a former home economics teacher at Twinsburg High School, pleaded guilty to one county of sexual battery after it was discovered she had sex with a 17-year-old student inside her classroom.

Twinsburg officers said they started the investigation after Bucy’s ex-husband called police to report the crime.

Her ex-husband called police on Sept. 6, 2018 and charges were filed on Sept. 13, 2018.

According to Bucy, she had sex with the student one time in either February or March.

Police also said Bucy and the student exchanged explicit videos of each other on Snapchat.

Bucy began working for Twinsburg Schools in August of 2017.

She is scheduled to be sentenced by Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Susan Baker Ross on Aug. 29.
