A former Franklin High School teacher has pleaded guilty to a sex charge involving a student.

Madalyn Arnett, 26, was arrested at her West Carrollton home in March 2018 and charged with sexual battery. She was indicted by a Warren County grand jury a few weeks later.

Last week, Arnett pleaded guilty to the third-degree felony the involved boy who was 16-years-old at the time.

Arnett admitted to sexting with a student when confronted by school officials, according to court records.

“But this charge means there was a sexual encounter,” Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell said last year. He said that contact took place in a car in a Franklin Twp. parking lot the week before Arnett was arrested.

Warren County Common Pleas Judge Tim Tepe set sentencing for May 3. Arnett faces up to five year in prison.
