A former central Florida teacher will be sentenced in July after pleading guilty to 37 child sex charges with three teenage students.

The Lakeland Ledger reports that 30-year-old Jennifer Christine Fichter of Davenport is expected to be sentenced July 2nd by Circuit Judge Glenn Shelby.

Each charge of the unlawful sexual activity with a minor carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

Fichter initially was arrested in April of 2014, on allegations she had carried on a sexual relationship with one of her students at the Central Florida Aerospace Academy in Lakeland, where she had taught English for three years.

Two more teenage victims — both 17-year-old male students of Fichter — came forward following news reports of her arrest.

Fichter also faces charges in Hillsborough County.
