The trial for a former Kennebunk High School teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student begins in a York County courtroom Monday morning.
The lawyer for 29-year-old Jill Lamontagne, Scott Gardner, says she is innocent and the accusations are “teen fantasies.”
Kennebunk police says Lamontagne allegedly had sex with a male student.

Court documents say she was ordered to stay away from the student in June 2017 after his mother wrote in a complaint about their alleged inappropriate relationship.
But Gardner says the accusations aren’t true.
He has also requested the court exclude text messages from the case, calling their credibility into question.
