    Date released January 28, 2013

    This afternoon, Ryan Tanner, age 36 of Galion, was arrested on a warrant for Sexual Battery, a Felony of the 3rd degree. Mr. Tanner has served Galion City Schools as a Social Studies Teacher and Instructor of our Career Based Intervention Programs since 2008. Mr. Tanner is being charged with engaging in inappropriate sexual conduct with a student. The involvement was to have occurred at the end of 2011 through 2012. Mr. Tanner is currently being held at the Crawford County Jail awaiting an arraignment on the charges.

    I received a phone call suggesting Mr. Tanner had engaged in inappropriate actions with students. I immediately began investing the accusations. Upon determining there was substance to the accusation, Mr. Tanner was placed on Administrative Leave on January 23, 2013. Through full cooperation with the Galion Police Department, a thorough investigation resulted in charges being filed with the Crawford County Prosecutor’s Office.
    Obviously this is a regrettable set of circumstances and I want the community to know we are committed to the safety and well-being of all students.

    For more information, contact Kathleen S. Jenney, Superintendent at 419–468-3432.

    Bucyrus Telegraph Forum: Lawyer: Galion High School teacher will fight sex charges - Lawyer: Allegations are 'preposterous' (Jan 31 2013)

    Although school officials believe Tanner’s situation involved a student who has graduated, Superintendent Kathy Jenney said new evidence may point to relationships with other students. Further probing into Tanner’s social media and email accounts on school-issued property has “expanded our knowledge of additional students that had been messaging with him,” Jenney said. There are two issues, Jenney said. The first is whether or not Tanner violated school board policy — it’s not illegal for teachers to use social media to contact students, but the nature of the contact must remain professional. The second is whether or not he violated the federal law by having sexual relations with a minor.

    On Monday, Tanner’s Twitter account showed multiple conversations with current female students. A Twitter account belonging to one of the students was also removed Tuesday.
