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.
