D & H Associate Comments on Schuler Verdict

Click the link below to watch the LIVE interview of Attorney Gabe Moorman with Fox45/ABC22 Anchor Meghan Mongillo.  The former Mason High School gym teacher was found guilty on all sixteen counts of sexual battery and three counts of providing alcohol to minors.  Despite strong expert witnesses, the defense could not prove that Schuler was insane by a preponderance of the evidence.  Warren County Court of Common Pleas Judge Robert Peeler sentenced Stacy Schuler to four years in prison.  She will be eligible for judicial release in six months.  Schuler must also register as a Tier 3 sex offender, requiring her to verify her address with the State every ninety days.

Change of Plea for Mason Teacher

By: Gabriel Moorman

Stacy Schuler, the former Mason High School gym teacher accused of having sex with a number of her students, has entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.

This often utilized and rarely successful plea is an attempt by the defense to offer a legal excuse for Ms. Schuler’s actions.  While quite possibly the defendant’s best argument, the requirements for such a plea are very difficult to establish.

The defense, in effect, is not contesting whether or not the sexual conduct took place – they are only arguing that Ms. Schuler did not possess the necessary mental state or intent to commit the crime.

The trial court will order her to be evaluated, and the expert report will probably be provided in about 4-6 weeks.

Her trial is set to begin on August 8th, 2011, at the Warren County Court of Common Pleas in front of Judge Robert Peeler.
