High School teacher in Ohio accused of child sex abuse against student

 

The School District in Shaker Heights City announced last week that an employee at Onaway Elementary School was charged with felony child sex abuse.

 Joan L. Meyer, 45, was the library media specialist at Onaway Elementary School  ad charges have been filed.

Meyer is accused of sex crimes that began in 2009. She allegedly performed sexual acts with her student, a teenage boy, at Two Rivers Public Charter School. 

One of her alleged victims, now age 24,  contacted her employer in June of 2019, according to records. The man contacted the principal of a school she had  worked at prior to her time at Onaway Elementary.  

According to court documents, the victim told police the sexual abuse began while he was a student at Two Rivers and continued until he was 19 years old.
