LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A hearing was held Thursday morning to determine whether or not Stacy Schuler should be let out of prison early.

Schuler was sentenced to four years in prison in October 2011 for having sex with students while she was a teacher a Mason High School. She was convicted of 16 counts of sexual battery.

Her attorneys are asking for early release. They say her time has been well spent, tutoring several inmates to help them pass the GED, in addition to holding wellness classes within the prison.

Judge Robert Peeler ordered further assessments in the case before he makes his decision.

Schuler did not attend Thursday's hearing. A date for another hearing has not been set.
