An Ohio teacher accused of a sexual relationship with a high school student missed his arraignment last month- instead deciding to join the Army.
29-year-old Samuel Glenn, who is charged with sexual battery, has since enlisted after losing his teaching job and has been missing court dates as a result.
The former Centerville High School teacher was placed on leave in 2017 after allegations surfaced regarding a possible sexual relationship with a student in 2017*. Though nothing has been proven, Glenn resigned shortly after.
Since then, Glenn has allegedly joined the Army, with his lawyer filing a motion to enter a written plea of “not guilty,” and adding that Glenn “is not a resident of the state of Ohio and is currently active duty military.”
According to WHIO, the prosecutor’s office has asked for permission to “file a response directly with the court in lieu of an initial appearance.”
The case is on hold until the motion is approved or Glenn appears in court, whichever comes first.
