DAYTON — Steven Jutras, a former teacher in the Huber Heights City Schools, was sentenced to three years in prison related to a felonious assault that occurred last year in the parking lot of the Walmart in Butler Township.
Jutras, who is 47, was sentenced by Judge Timothy O’Connell in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court on Monday.
Jutras was charged with felonious assault for attempting to run over a person he knew in the Walmart parking lot on Miller Lane. He was arrested by Butler Township Police as he was leaving a hotel room.
Jutras will also serve prison time for two counts of aggravated possession of drugs and a count of drug trafficking, all felonies. Those sentences will run concurrent with the felonious assault term. He will get credit for nearly six months served in jail as of sentencing.
Jutras is a former teacher and basketball coach at Weisenborn Junior High School in Huber Heights. He was placed on administrative leave in March, 2015 after a string of incidents that were in violation of board policy. HHCS Sue Gunnell stressed that none of the incidents involved students or children.
“The incident had nothing to do with children, so there isn’t any concern of families that something might have happened,”said Gunnell, who indicated information has been related to the Office of Professional Conduct related to the allegations. Gunnell made those comments in 2015 after Jutras was placed on leave.
