NEWARK, Ohio (WCMH)–A former Newark City Schools music teacher, who was convicted of engaging in sexual relationships with three students, is now out of prison.

A judge granted judicial release Friday for Anthony Miller.

The former teacher served 17 months of a nearly five-year sentence.

Miller, of Westerville pleaded guilty in July 2014 to 13 counts, including felony sexual battery and misdemeanor sexual imposition.

Authorities say the charges against Miller reflect his conduct with three female students at Newark High School, where he worked as an assistant band director. Miller was arrested in February 2014 and was suspended without pay by Newark City Schools.

Miller will now have to complete 250 hours of community service, and will register as a sex offender.

According to his attorney, he will register in Erie County and live with his parents.
