DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - A former substitute teacher for Kettering and Oakwood schools has pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual battery charges involving students. The Montgomery County Prosecutor's Office made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.

Madeline Marx was arrested at Kettering Fairmont High School on Nov. 8, 2017 after staff members were made aware of a possible inappropriate relationship with students. She was indicted on Nov. 16 on two counts of sexual battery involving a minor.

Marx, 24, will be sentenced on April 19. She faces up to 36 months for each count against her and must register as a Tier III Sex Offender.

Marx' attorney had planned to have her plead not guilty by reason of insanity, but after a mental evaluation, a judge found that she was competent to stand trial. According to a police report from Kettering Police, there are two alleged victims. According to the report, the alleged relationship started in June of 2017 ended in September of 2017.
