The Kettering Fairmont High School substitute teacher accused last week of having sex with two students in a Big Lots and apartment complex parking lot pleaded not guilty in municipal court Monday.

Madeline J. Marx, 23, appeared to be in tears during her arraignment in Kettering Municipal Court.

“On behalf of Ms. Marx,” attorney Keith Fricker said. “We’ll enter a not guilty plea, your Honor, and ask that the bond be continued as was previously ordered by this court.”

Marx is free on bond with conditions, including that she stay at her father’s residence while the court case progresses. She also was ordered not to have any communication with the alleged victims.

Marx is charged with two counts of sexual battery and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Nov. 21.

Both counts are third-degree felonies and punishable by sentences of up to 9 to 36 months in prison.

A 17-year-old student told police he was given oral sex by a teacher July 19 in the parking lot of Big Lots on Wilmington Pike, according to the complaint, affidavit and statement of facts filed in court.

A 16-year-old boy told police he had intercourse with a substitute teacher Sept. 21 in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Smithville Road, according to court documents.

Marx was removed from Fairmont’s building Nov. 8 by police. Marx admitted to having sexual relationships with multiple students, according to court documents.

An affidavit said Marx also confessed to sending several nude pictures via Snapchat and Instagram.

A prosecutor’s office press release indicated Marx also substitute taught in Oakwood. School officials in Oakwood sent parents a letter saying that they did not know of any victims in their school district.

State records indicated Marx has a four-year teaching license as a K-12 education intervention specialist.

Marx graduated in 2012 from Chaminade Julienne High School in Dayton and graduated from the University of Dayton in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in education, according to CJ and UD officials.

According to her UD transcript included in her personnel file, Marx withdrew from a fall 2013 class on sexual ethics.
