She is charged with two counts of sexual battery and is being held in the Montgomery County Jail. Prosecutors said her case will be presented to a county grand jury.

“We became aware (the teacher was) possibly involved with inappropriate activities with a juvenile,” said Kettering Superintendent Scott Inskeep. “When we become aware of them then we will remove those people and not have them around our students.”
Inskeep identified the substitute teacher as Madeline Marx, 23, of Brookville. She was booked into jail on two counts of sexual battery, according to police.
Police were notified of the allegations against Marx around 8 a.m. Wednesday and by 11:45 a.m. she was arrested after a detective found probable cause for her arrest, said Kettering police Lt. Mike Gabrielson.
Marx remains jailed, pending the filing of formal charges, on two counts of sexual battery. She was booked into the Montgomery County Jail about 1:45 p.m.
According to state records, Marx was issued a 4-year teaching license in 2016 to instruct grades K-12.
Inskeep said Marx, a 2012 graduate of Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School, served as a substitute for the district last year and this year.
Gabrielson could not release any specific details about the accusations or whether the accused activities happened inside or outside the school, but added that official charges will be presented to the county prosecutor’s office within 48 hours.
Marx had no previous incidents with Kettering police, Gabrielson said.

MASSIE TWP. — The Massie Twp. Board of Trustees has called a special meeting for 6:30 p.m. today to discuss the future of the township fire department.
Fire Chief Scott Hines, the department’s only paid employee, resigned on Jan. 2 after learning he was under scrutiny for purchasing food for firefighters, and part of the department’s entirely volunteer force resigned too.
“They left us with a skeleton crew,” Trustee David Crisenbery said this morning.
The township, home to about 1,500 residents, is on the south side of Caesar Creek Lake. The department handles emergency calls from the lake.
Since Hines’ resignation, fire and emergency calls are being handled by the remaining department along with mutual aid from fire departments in Wayne Twp., Warren County, and Chester Twp., Clinton County.
The trustees are also weighing creating a joint fire district with Chester Twp. with new levies supporting the operation.
“That is the goal,” Trustee Daryl McKinney said.
A larger district qualifies for more grants, McKinney said.
The Massie Twp department operates on a $92,000 budget from two levies.
Crisenbery said the township could seek an additional local levy to fund part-time paid firefighters. Also, Hines’ replacement could be picked, Crisenbery added.
“Anything’s possible tonight,” Crisenbery said. “All options, I feel, should be on the table.”
Hines could not be immediately reached.
