LEBANON, OH (FOX19) -

The prosecution rested its case on Tuesday against a former Mason teacher accused of having sex with multiple students.

Stacy Schuler, 33, is accused of having sex with multiple students while she was a gym teacher and athletic trainer at the school between August and December of last year. More of the sexual encounters involving the five high school boys behind the closed doors of Stacy Schuler's Springboro home, came out in court Tuesday.

"They were making out and she pressed her body up against mine, and my back was towards the back of the wall and then we started having sex," said one of the victim's in court who didn't want to be identified.
 
There was also stunning testimony from two females who were former students at Mason High, who said they once confided in Schuler, and when the rumors around the school began swirling, they say Schuler informed them that she was already devising a defense plan.
 
"She talked about how she would just try to plead insane, because of how her divorce, she had a bad divorce," said the witness who didn't want to be identified.
 
Defense attorneys were quick to point out that neither of the women told detectives about Schuler's alleged plan to plead insane during initial interviews.
 
If someone told you that they were going to plead insanity, that would have a pretty lasting impact on you, wouldn't it?," questioned defense attorney Charlie Rittgers to the witness.
 
One of the former students became emotional as she explained why she wasn't as forth coming to police initially
 
"She was not my friend and when I opened up and accepted the truth of what happened, it became very clear to me that I did not need to defend and sugarcoat what this person did," said the witness.
 
A forensic scientist also testified to finding one of the victims DNA on Schuler's comforter.
 
 
Schuler's defense claims she suffers from multiple personality disorders and doesn't even remember having sex with the boys. The defense is scheduled to start calling their witnesses on Wednesday at 9:00 am.
