Former Boardman High teacher faces sentencing for having sex with student

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN, Ohio - A former Boardman High School teacher will face sentencing for having sex with a student.
 
The victim talked with 21 News saying she is upset that Joe Cleghorn might not get any jail time.
 
She tells 21 News the Mahoning Prosecutor's office told her they would represent her but they have not talked with her regarding his upcoming sentencing, and was told the prosecuting attorney might have some time to talk with her before sentencing which takes place Monday.
 
Joe Cleghorn pleaded guilty to sexual battery for having a sexual relationship with a 16 year-old student between 2007 to 2009.
 
The victim came forward after she had her own child, saying she realizes what the teacher and former coach did was entirely wrong.
 
The victim says she wanted to prevent Cleghorn from preying on other students.
 
The prosecutor's office says the teacher lost his license and will be required to register as a sex offender.
 
The victim says Cleghorn lost his license due to his actions and deserves jail time. Cleghorn is scheduled to be sentenced Monday November 4 at 11:30 a.m. in Judge Lou Dapalito's courtroom.
