MIAMISBURG, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - A Miamisburg teen gave graphic testimony on the stand in court in Montgomery County on Thursday in the trial of a former middle school teacher Jessica Langford.

Langford has been indicted on three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, and three counts of sexual battery as a teacher.

The student was in the 8th grade at the time of the alleged sex acts back in May of 2017, but not a student of Langford's, as testimony showed.

In court Thursday, surveillance video from the school was introduced, that showed Langford and the male student walking into school together, and then into Langford's classroom.

The teen said he initiated the relationship, via Snapchat, during a school trip to Washington D.C.

He says the day of the alleged sexual conduct, he brought doughnuts as shown in the surveillance video and came to school early.

"Started kissing, she leaned in for a kiss and then it escalated from there," the teen testified. "I told her I wanted to have sex."

The teen then told the jury that he and Langford performed various sex acts, including intercourse, pointing out to prosecutors where each alleged act happened inside Langford's classroom.

"We were having sex for about 20, 30 minutes and then time was running out," the teen said.

The teen said then, the school principal knocked on the classroom door.

"Ms. Langford tells me to hide underneath the desk," the teen explained.

He also said he and Langford planned to lie, as the prosecutor read text messages the two allegedly sent back and forth about the incident.

"And you referenced sticking to a story," the prosecutor asked, and the teen replied yes.

"And what was that story," the prosecutor continued.

"That I was in there stacking desks," the teen said.

Langford has pleaded not guilty, and her defense today in closing arguments, told the jury not to believe the student because he admitted to lying to administrators about what happened.

The jury was told to recess Thursday night but will be back Friday morning at 9:30 for deliberations and a possible verdict.
