Former high school biology teacher Stephanie Fletcher, 28, was arrested on November 19, 2012, and charged with two counts of third-degree rape, one count of third-degree criminal sexual act and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Fletcher, who has been married since 2010, is being accused of sending suggestive text messages to two male students and performing oral sex on them during the time that she was a teacher at Walton High School in Walton, New York.

Allegedly, the sexual incidents happened after Fletcher began tutoring both boys.

One victim told the police, "She was telling me that every question I got right we could do something,"

Both boys also said that Fletcher threatened to kill herself if they told anyone about the relationships.

The incidents allegedly occurred during study halls, between classes, in the school parking lot and in private homes. According to one of the boys, the sexual relations with Fletcher began in December 2010, around the same time that she was married.

It has also been reported by WBNG that one of the boys felt like his grades were bad because Fletcher was also having a relationship with another teacher at the high school. The victim told police that the teacher knew about his relationship with Fletcher and was giving him a failing grade because of it.

Fletcher has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.
