[Previous 11/21/12 post]
(Oneonta, New York) A 28-year-old biology teacher at Walton High School, Stephanie Fletcher, has been accused of engaging in sex with underage students.
Fletcher faces charges of rape, criminal sexual act and endangering the welfare of a child.
Officials with knowledge of the case told The Daily Star that at least one of the alleged illicit contacts with a student happened in the village of Walton, and another took place in the town of Tompkins.Fletcher was released on her own recognizance.
However, it could not be determined if Fletcher had any alleged encounters with students on school grounds, as state police declined to discuss the case beyond what was outlined in a brief press release.
In that release, issued Monday afternoon, state police said: “The arrest is the result of an investigation into sexual relationships the defendant had with underage victims."
