Walton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A former Walton teacher who was indicted on charges of rape and having sex with two underage students is charged again for the felony crimes.

Stephanie Fletcher, 29, is charged with two counts of third-degree rape and four counts of third-degree criminal sexual act.

The indictment reads Fletcher had sex with two minors under 17 between January and March 2012.

In February, a judge in Delaware County dismissed her original indictment, because the grand jury did not receive one of the victim's written statements.

That statement would have said the victim was 17 at the time of the sexual encounters, which is the legal age of consent in New York.

The new indictment was filed on March 6, 2014 and signed by John Muehl, a Delaware County Special District Attorney.

Fletcher is scheduled to be arraigned in Delaware County Court on March 27.
