Norwalk ex-teacher pleads guilty to sexual battery

A former Norwalk teacher has pleaded guilty to having sex with a student.

Alexa Nasonti, 25, Bellevue, faces up to five years in prison on the third-degree felony charge.

She pleaded guilty in Sandusky County Common Pleas Court on Monday morning where she was scheduled for a pre-trial hearing. 

Sandusky County prosecutor Tom Stierwalt said his recommendation for sentencing will depend on the outcome of a pre-sentence investigation to be completed by the probation department. If the investigation indicates she deserves prison time, he'll request she be sentenced up to 18 months behind bars.

Nasonti was discovered sitting in a car with a 17-year-old male student at a Castalia park after dark April 2. Officers subpoenaed cell phone records between her and the boy, which indicated there was sexual conduct between the two at a home in Bellevue on March 31.

Nasonti resigned May 2 from her job as an art teacher at Norwalk schools.
