Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DANCE in­struc­tor has been found guilty of hav­ing sex with a 15-year-old male stu­dent.

Prose­cu­tors said the hus­band of Kim­berly Sauto ( re­ported the re­la­tion­ship to cops af­ter find­ing con­doms in his wife’s dance bag and text mes­sages be­tween her and the vic­tim.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors said the boy was a stu­dent in 34-year-old Sauto’s tap danc­ing class.

They had sex in Sauto’s car in Au­gust last year, ac­cord­ing to prose­cu­tors, though she did not ad­mit to a sex­ual re­la­tion­ship.

Sauto, of North Ridgeville, Ohio, was con­victed by a jury of un­law­ful sex­ual con­duct with a mi­nor, and the was re­manded in cus­tody un­til sen­tenc­ing in March, when she faces five years in jail.

The boy was not in court dur­ing the trial, but some mem­bers of his fam­ily cried qui­etly at the ver­dict, though they de­clined to com­ment.
