Hilary Dattilo, 30, was charged Tuesday for sexual battery and contributing to the delinquency of a minor after reports that she was sexually involved with a student at Hamilton High School, news station WHIO reported.
Dattilo, who was also a school volleyball coach, allegedly engaged in sexual encounters with the student off-campus between Aug. 3 and Dec. 8.
Parents of students reportedly tipped off police about the relationship allegations.
