HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an Ohio high school teacher accused of sexual misconduct with a student has been charged.
Hilary Dattilo pleaded not guilty Tuesday to sexual battery and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a child.
A judge set bond at $5,000 for the 30-year-old Monroe woman, who also coached volleyball at the school in southwest Ohio. Court records don’t list an attorney for Dattilo, and no home telephone listing could be found for her.
Police said they began investigating after parents reported possible inappropriate contact between Dattilo and the girl to a staff member at Hamilton High School.
The Hamilton City School District says Dattilo was put on administrative leave.
