Former teacher and councilman to spend 6 years in prison
(2007-05-03)
(WOUB) - A former Vinton County teacher and Wellston City Councilman will spend six years in prison for engaging in sexual activity with underage students.

John Aubrey was sentenced Monday on charges of sexual battery.

The judge also gave Aubrey an official designation of sexually oriented offender and ordered him to pay court costs.

Tim Gleeson is the Vinton County Prosecutor.

Gleeson says as a parent himself, he places a great deal of trust in the school system and when the trust is abused, action must be taken.

In an unrelated case, Aubrey also received a 20 month sentence in January for improperly mishandling a firearm.
