Former Alliance Schools Counselor Gets Probation in Sex-Related Case

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A former Alliance Middle School counselor is on probation for three years and must do community service.

This for a guilty plea by Gelsaira Ortiz to a ‘disseminating harmful material to a juvenile’ charge.

The 27-year-old Maple Heights woman resigned from her job back in May, shortly after the incidents became known.

Ortiz was accused of sending sexual images of herself to a 14-year-old student.

She has also lost her Department of Education counseling license.

She must stay away from those under the age of 18 while on probation.
