Substitute teacher Madeline J. Marx, 23, was charged Thursday with two counts of sexual battery for allegedly having sexual relationships with multiple Kettering Fairmont High School students.
A 17-year-old student told police he was given oral sex by a teacher July 19, according to the complaint, affidavit and statement of facts filed with Kettering Municipal Court.
A 16-year-old boy told police he had intercourse with a substitute teacher Sept. 21.
Neither incident occurred on school property, according to the court documents.
The affidavit said Marx confessed to the conduct and to sending several nude pictures via Snapchat and Instagram.

A Kettering police report indicates the alleged incidents happened from June 1 to Sept. 21, 2017 in a parking lot.
“Substitute teacher at Fairmont High School was found to have been involved in a sexual relationship with students,” the report’s narrative stated.
