Walton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A former Walton High School teacher is arrested after having sexual relationships with two students.

The victims were 16 years old at the time.

In police statements, both victims say the relationship started when Stephanie Fletcher , 28, of Walton, started texting them.

The relationship became physical when she offered to help tutor them privately after school.

"She was telling me that every question I got right we could do something," one victim describes.

Fletcher was the high school's biology teacher at the time; she has since resigned.

According to police statements, most of the sexual contact happened outside of school. But there were some instances during study halls and class breaks, and in the high school parking lot.

Both victims say Fletcher texted them naked and half-clothed photos of herself, and often performed oral sex on them.

A relationship with one of the victims started in December of 2010 and lasted three maybe four months, according to the victim's statement to state police.

Another student is a senior at Walton High School. He says the relationship began in March or April and lasted until the end of the school year.

The two students both told state police Fletcher threatened to commit suicide if they told anyone about the relationship.

One victim adds in his statement to police that he felt like he was getting failing marks in another one of his classes due to a relationship Fletcher was having with a teacher at Walton High School.

Stephanie Fletcher has been married to Kirk Fletcher, of Walton since 2010.

Charges:
Two counts of rape in the 3rd degree.
One count of Criminal Sexual Act in the 3rd degree.
Two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Fletcher is expected to be back in court on Nov. 29.
