Crawford County prosecutor

CRESTLINE -- A Crestline elementary school teacher has been indicted for sexual battery involving a student, according to Crawford County Prosecutor Matthew Crall.

Cory Forshaw, who allegedly had sexual conduct with a student enrolled at Crestline Exempted Village Schools, taught fourth grade in the district until being placed on leave.

Crall announced the one-count indictment with a press release Thursday afternoon.

"I will not be commenting on the merits of this issue because the fairness of our judicial system requires that disputed issues be determined in a court of law, not the court of public opinion," Crall said in the written statement.

"The Crestline Village Police Department and the Crestline Village Exempted Schools have and will continue to do everything they can do to safeguard the students that they both serve," the prosecutor said.
