Murphy was sentenced in October 2017 to five years of probation after being found guilty of five felonies – forgery, tampering with government records and three counts of sexual battery. County prosecutor’s spokesman Greg Flannagan has said there was one victim in the case, a female student who had already turned 18.

•Former Huber Heights teacher Steve Jutras. Jutras was 47 when he was sentenced in November 2016 to prison for attempting to run down a woman in the parking lot of the Walmart in Butler Twp.

The former teacher of the year was given three years on a felonious assault charge to run concurrent with a previous drug conviction. He was sentenced to two years for the drug conviction, and is expected to get credit for five-and-a-half months he spent in jail.

•Butler County teacher Tyler Conrad. The former Fairfield High School teacher was 26 when he was found guilty in June 2017 on charges of sexual imposition and contributing to delinquency of a minor.
