On Monday, a Florida teacher was arrested after confessing to having sex with a student who was a minor, then having an abortion.
The Tampa Tribune reports that Jennifer Christine Fichter, 29, of Davenport, Fla. taught English at Central Florida Aerospace Academy in Polk County, Fla. She allegedly began having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy in November, with their encounters usually taking place in her vehicle early in the morning. But, of course, there's more:
The teen told detectives he and the teacher met for sex three times in the parking lot of a Lakeland apartment complex and three times at a location off New Tampa Highway. He also said they had sex four times outside the city in Polk and Hillsborough, and those incidents are under investigation in those counties, Lakeland police said.
The boy's mother grew suspicious in January after discovering that her son was not home at 5 a.m. After reading his texts, she found a conversation discussing an age difference. When she confronted the boy, he admitted to having sex with Fichter and his mother contacted police, who instructed her to organize a recorded phone call.
That's when Fichter admitted to having sex with the boy "20 to 30" times, revealing that she had become pregnant and had an abortion. She also told the woman she was in love with her son and wanted to continue the relationship.
She was arrested and charged with six counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
