Matthew Thornsley is also required to register as a sex offender.
A former teacher has been placed on 3 years of probation for having sexual relations with an 18-year-old female student. The Columbus Dispatch reports 30-year-old Matthew Thornsley, a former Circleville High School special education teacher, was sentenced in the Pickaway County Common Pleas Court after previously pleading guilty to gross sexual imposition.
Thornsley will be required to register as a sex offender for the next 15 years and has been ordered to a 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.
While the student involved was an adult, Ohio law makes it illegal for those in position of authority to have sexual relations with students.
