Jennifer Fichter, teacher accused of having sex with students, makes 1st appearance in Hillsborough

TAMPA - Jennifer Fichter, the Polk County teacher accused of having sex with three of her students, is also facing charges in Hillsborough County.

Lakeland Police arrested Fichter, 28, in April, after, they said she admitted to having sex with a 17-year-old student.  

Police said the teacher at Central Florida Aerospace Academy had sex with the teen 20 to 30 times in her truck in parking lots around Polk and Hillsborough Counties.

Investigators later learned about two other students she allegedly slept with.

"I mean it's scary. She made comments that she's in love with a student. That's enough to scare anybody," said Sgt. Gary Gross with the Lakeland Police Department.

Between all three cases, Fichter already faces dozens of charges in Polk County. Her bond there is set at $520,000.

She is scheduled to appear before a Hillsborough County judge soon.
