School superintendent facing student sex charges resigns

June 4, 2019

RAVENNA, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio school superintendent accused of sex charges involving two students has resigned.

The Ravenna Record Courier reports Laura Amero, superintendent of Windham Exempted Schools, submitted her resignation last week.

Amero pleaded not guilty in April to charges of sexual battery, attempted sexual battery and intimidation of a crime victim or witness.

Messages seeking comment were left for her attorney.

An indictment against the 35-year-old Amero accuses her of having sex with a 16-year-old boy in 2017 and attempting to have sexual relations with another student between 2015 and 2017 when he was 16 and 17.

Amero was a principal in the district at the time and was hired as superintendent in February.
