Teacher Takes the Stand in Her Own Defense

Updated: Wednesday, October 30 2013, 10:14 PM EDT
COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio (Jeff Hirsh) -- Closing arguments set for for Thursday in the sex trial of a former teacher at Colerain High School.

Julie Hautzenroeder is accused of having sex with two 16-year-old students.  Hautzenroeder took the stand Wednesday to give jurors her side of the story.

WARNING: Some of the testimony may be offensive to some.

Hautzenroeder was the first and only defense witness.  She strongly denied ever having sex with the two teenage boys who did come to her apartment one night in early May. 

She testified she was shocked when the boys had disrobed down to their shorts.  While they pressured her to have sex, Hautzenroeder said she refused; instead performing oral sex on a sex toy.

She also denied ever smoking marijuana, a direct contradiction to the testimony from the two boys and a 19-year-old friend of Hautzenroeder's who also testified.      

Because the two teens are minors Local 12 has eliminated their names from the testimony filmed between Hautzenroeder and the prosecutor. 

Attorneys on both sides will give their closing arguments on Thursday.

If convicted on both counts of sexual battery, Hautzenroeder could get up to ten years in prison.
