Ohio Teacher Arrested For Sex With Students, Sending Nude Pics On Snapchat

Both victims were in the 11th grade at the time.

An Ohio substitute teacher allegedly confessed to detectives that she had sexual encounters with two students and sent nude pictures to one through Snapchat and Instagram, The Washington Post reported.

Madeline Marx, 23, was charged with two counts of sexual battery after she admitted to having sex with one student and performing oral sex on another, police said. Both students were minors in the 11th grade.

“Teachers are entrusted with the responsibility of educating children who are becoming young adults,” Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. said to the Dayton Daily News. “This defendant took advantage of her position and developed a sexual relationship with minor students.”

Kettering City School District began investigating Marx after receiving a tip from one or several of their students, the Post reported. Police came to the school on Wednesday, and Marx was arrested by Thursday.

Marx began working as a substitute teacher at the high school last year, with no obvious issues.

“There were no signs or anything that we knew about that would’ve caused us to be concerned,” said Kettering City School District Superintendent Scott Inskeep.

Marx, a graduate from the University of Dayton, recieved a four-year teaching license for kindergarten through 12th grade in June 2016.

“Today with the incidents that seem to be occurring regularly in all walks in the professional world, including in the media, including the arts, including our most profoundly successful senators, it’s just … it’s an issue we’ve got to keep working on,” Inskeep said. “But it worked here. Kids, students were concerned, and they made an administrator aware, and we investigated immediately, and that person is no longer working with our students.”
