Former teacher awaits sentencing for taking students to Warren hotel
A former teacher from the Valley arrested allegedly taking two of her teenage students to Trumbull County hotels to have sex awaits sentencing after pleading guilty to an amended charge.
Christina Sosbe, 29, formerly of Salem, pleaded guilty in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court on Monday to one count of sexual battery, a third-degree felony. She had been indicted on three counts.
According to Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman, Sosbe was a teacher at a program located inside Choffin Career and Technical Center in Youngstown when she had sexual relations with two 16-year-old male students.
A spokesperson for Choffin tells 21 News that Sosbe was not employed by the school, but worked for an organization called Pace that was located in Choffin.
According to the indictment, the alleged incidents took place on December 8 and December 9, 2018.
Wildman says Sosbe stayed with the teens at a hotel on Courthouse Square. That hotel has since changed ownership.
According to the Ohio Department of Education disciplinary records, Sosbe’s license to teach math was permanently revoked last year.
Sosbe will be sentenced after the completion of a pre-sentencing report.
