What led to Madeline Marx an Ohio substitute teacher allegedly having sex with two teen students? Admits having sent lewd photos to her teen victims.
Madeline J. Marx a 23 year old Ohio substitute teacher has been arrested after allegations of having had sexual relationships with at least two students.
Upon her arrest Wednesday at Kettering Fairmont High School, the educator was booked on two felony counts of sexual battery.
At the time of her arrest, WHIO reported Marx having been a substitute in the district for two years and handed a four year teaching license last year, enabling her to teach grades K-12.
WHIO reported Marx graduating from the nearby Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School in 2012.
School authorities were put on notice just on 8am Wednesday morning after students went to the school principal saying they were concerned about Marx having alleged relationship with two different 11th grade students.
Kettering police Lt. Mike Gabrielson said Marx was arrested three hours later after detectives found probable cause.
‘We became aware (Marx) was possibly involved with inappropriate activities with a juvenile,’ Kettering Superintendent Scott Inskeep said.
‘When we become aware of them then we will remove those people and not have them around our students.’
