Investigators have discovered that a Florida teacher who confessed to having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy left another school six years ago after they investigated her for comments she made about an eighth grade student.
Jennifer Fitcher, 29, was recently arrested for having sex with a 17-year-old student dozens of times in the back of her pickup truck in Lakeland, Florida. In this case, the boy’s parents made the shocking discovery.
"The mother thought there was some suspicious activity with her son disappearing at the early morning hours," said Sgt. Gary Gross to the NY Daily News. "She started looking at his text messages and noticed he was conversing with two different females. At that point, he called the teacher. She admitted that they had been in love and that they had been having sex."
After being arrested, Fitcher told authorities that she had, at one point, become pregnant with the teen’s child, but decided to have an abortion.
Shockingly, the teacher’s history of inappropriate behavior with underage students doesn’t end there. Back in 2008, Fitcher left an Orange County school after they launched an investigation following comments she reportedly made about an eighth grade student. According to reports, Fitcher had confessed to another teacher that the student, “makes me melt into a puddle with those eyes,” and that she had recently had a sex dream about him.
"Oh my goodness, it was a goooood dream!" Fitcher reportedly told her colleague.
Another couple has now come forward saying they have proof that their son has had inappropriate conversations with Fitcher. That couple says they were able to connect the dots when they saw Fitcher’s mug shot on the news after she was arrested.
Sgt. Gross says that he would definitely consider Fitcher to be a sexual predator but cannot yet say if she has actually had sex with any other students.
"I would classify her as a sexual predator based on how she used aliases and lured this guy in," said Gross. "We think there could be other victims and we encourage them to come forward."
Fitcher has been charged with six counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.
