Polk teacher accused of sex with students faces Hillsborough hearing

TAMPA — Jennifer Fichter, the Polk County teacher facing charges of having sex with underage students, is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on some of the counts in Hillsborough County.

Transferred from Polk to the Hillsborough County Jail, Fichter, 29, faces three charges in Hillsborough and 37 in Polk.

She was arrested in April in Lakeland. She is accused of having sex with three students at the Central Florida Aerospace Academy. While most of the encounters happened in Polk, investigators said, some occurred in Hillsborough.

After her arraignment, Fichter will be sent back to jail in Polk, a spokesman for the Hillsborough State Attorney's Office said.
