Polk teacher charged for sex with third student

BARTOW (FOX 13) -

The Polk County teacher recently accused of having sex with at least two students faces new charges Thursday after a third student said he'd also been with her- this time on top of the FAA building in Lakeland.

Jennifer Fichter, 29, was originally arrested back in April for carrying on a relationship with a 17-year-old student from the Central Florida Aerospace Academy.

The victim’s mother discovered the affair after finding text messages from Fichter in her son's phone.

Later that month, detectives learned the affair may not have been Fichter’s first. A former student of hers came forward with similar claims, saying he also had a relationship with her when he was 17.

It brought 20 more charges her way.

Investigators have since looked in to claims from a third student, which she'll face an additional 10 charges for after appearing before a judge this afternoon.
