A Norwalk art teacher accused of having sexual contact with a 17-year-old student has resigned.

Alexa Nasonti, 25, submitted her letter of resignation and the board of education met in emergency session

Friday morning to accept it, superintendent Dennis Doughty said.

Her resignation ends the school's investigation into the matter, but criminal charges could still be filed against her.

She's accused of engaging in sexual conduct with the boy at a private residence in Bellevue on March 31.

Sandusky County Prosecutor Tom Stierwalt is reviewing the case.

She cited personal reasons in her resignation letter dated May 2.
