HAMILTON, Ohio — A former high school softball coach accused of having a sexual relationship with a student pleaded guilty Tuesday to multiple sex-related offenses, according to court records.

Ashley Rison, whose age is redacted on Butler County Common Pleas court records, entered guilty pleas to sexual battery and two counts of gross sexual imposition. Charges of tampering with evidence and providing alcohol to an underage person were dropped.

Rison could be sentenced to eight years in prison. She also must register as a Tier III sex offender, court records show.

WXIX Channel 19 reports that the Butler County Sheriff’s Department says Rison’s victim was a 17-year-old student and a member of the softball team. Rison had sexual contact with the student eight times in April 2021, according to the indictment.

Rison quit her job in May 2021 after the incidents were reported to the sheriff’s department, WXIX reports.
