UPDATE: Former Teacher Testifies in Sex Trial
BUTLER COUNTY -- Closing arguments are set for Thursday in the sex trial of a former teacher at Colerain High School.
Julie Hautzenroeder is accused of having sex with two 16-year-old students. Hautzenroeder took the stand Wednesday to give jurors her side of the story.
WARNING: Some of the testimony may be offensive to some.
Hautzenroeder was the first and only defense witness.
She strongly denied ever having sex with the two teenage boys who did come to her apartment one night in early May. She testified she was shocked when the boys had disrobed down to their shorts.
While they pressured her to have sex, Hautzenroeder said she refused; instead performing oral sex on a sex toy. She also denied ever smoking marijuana, a direct contradiction to the testimony from the two boys and a 19-year-old friend of Hautzenroeder's who also testified.
Because the two teens are minors, their names have been removed from the testimony filmed between Hautzenroeder and the prosecutor.
Attorneys on both sides will give their closing arguments on Thursday.
If convicted on both counts of sexual battery, Hautzenroeder could get up to ten years in prison.

Teacher Accused of Having Sexual Relationship with Two Students
BUTLER COUNTY -- A Cincinnati area teacher is on trial after being accused of having sex with two male students.
Julie Hautzenroederer, 36, is charged with sexual battery. She's also accused of drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana with two 16-year-old boys.
Her attorney admits Hautzenroeder had an inappropriate relationship with the teens, but not a sexual one.
One of the alleged victims took the stand Tuesday.
"She asked us if we wanted to hang out ... at that point I thought that it might actually happen, that I could get with the teacher," that teen testified.
Prosecutors say after they all had sex, the teens spent the night. They also say the teacher compared her home to Vegas, saying, "What happens there stays there."
