An Ohio substitute teacher was removed from the classroom and arrested early Thursday for allegedly having sex with at least two 11th-graders. Police say 23-year-old Madeline Marx is accused of having sex with one student in a store parking lot in July and another student in an apartment building parking lot in September, the Dayton Daily News reports. One students was 16 years old and the other 17, police say. According to court documents, Marx admitted to police that she sent one of the Fairmont High School students nude photos of herself on Snapchat and Instagram.

"We became aware (the teacher was) possibly involved with inappropriate activities with a juvenile," says Kettering Superintendent Scott Inskeep. "When we become aware of them then we will remove those people and not have them around our students." WHIO reports that Marx was booked into the county jail and charged with two felony counts of sexual battery. Late Thursday, a judge said she could be released on condition that she live with her father while the case is pending. (An art teacher in Arkansas admitted having sex with four students after another teacher overheard a parent threatening her.)
